Huntsville, AL – Yorktown Systems Group, Inc. (Yorktown), a Service Disabled Veteran Owned Small Business (SDVOSB), is proud to announce two promotions: Scott Pulido has been selected as the Advanced Situational Awareness (ASA) Project Manager at the Maneuver Center of Excellence (MCoE) in Fort Benning, GA, and Vern Tubbs will assume the position of Vice President of Education, Training, & Operational Support.
Vern Tubbs joined Yorktown in May of 2014 as the ASA Project Manager following his six-plus year support of the Joint IED Defeat Organization (JIEDDO) Joint Expeditionary Team; he simultaneously served as the PM for the Adaptive Soldier Leader Training and Education (ASLTE) Contract at the MCoE. In January of 2016, he gained additional responsibility as the PM for the Indefinite Delivery/Indefinite Quantity (IDIQ) Contract in Fort Benning.
As Vice President of Education, Training, & Operations Support, Vern will oversee all Yorktown contracts under the umbrella of Training and Education, as well as spearheading ongoing and future initiatives to provide solutions to respective customers. Vern will ensure effective operational support is delivered to DOD, Law Enforcement Agencies, and other federal government organizations working in volatile environments.
Nick Fuller, Senior Vice President of operations for Yorktown says that "Vern is absolutely the right choice to assume this critical role. His extensive training and operational support experience, combined with his management and leadership skills, make him the ideal person for this job. I’m looking forward to seeing how far he can take all of the programs in his new portfolio."
Scott Pulido joined Yorktown in the summer of 2014 as an ASA Instructor, and this past September, he received a promotion to Alternate Program Manager/ ASA Chief Instructor. In his new role as the ASA Project Manager, Scott will oversee instructional support for all ASA Basic and Advanced courses. These courses, taught by the Yorktown Instructional Staff, provide training to increase each student’s awareness of the variables presented by their human and environmental terrain; this exposure to a multitude of complex, ambiguous situations in a controlled setting builds student confidence and resiliency. Scott will manage the development and refinement of these training materials for continuing instruction.
Nick Fuller stated "Scott has excelled in every position on this team and his promotion to Project Manager is very well deserved. He is the right person to lead this important program into the future at MCoE and throughout the Army."
