Prior to serving as president, he managed “Project Gemini,” the program that separated SAIC into two NYSE traded companies. Reporting to the Chief Operating Officer and Board of Directors, “Project Gemini” required the design, planning, and implementation to divide an $11 billion highly-integrated company with 38,000 employees into two distinct, publicly-held companies with unique strategic intents. This effort was successfully completed in 12 months, saved more than $400M in costs with both companies delivering multi-billion-dollar total shareholder return since the split.

Wagoner started his career at EDS (DXC) and for more than 10 years held positions in financial management, CFO for the Mexico-based subsidiary and then moved into sales and line management.

Wagoner has been honored by Federal Computer Week with a Fed100 Award in recognition for his work in reforming the security clearance process.
