Sandra Wheeler has been promoted to vice president of Tactical Networks at General Dynamics C4 Systems effective Jan. 1, the company said Nov. 28.
In this capacity, Wheeler will lead teams responsible for the development and fielding of the Army’s Warfighter Information Network-Tactical (WIN-T) systems, the company said.
Wheeler's experience managing large programs and her in-depth understanding of customers' missions and needs were determining factors in her promotion to the position, the company said.
She most recently led the business development and strategic marketing efforts for the company’s Secure Communications and Computing Technologies organization, which builds the AN/PRC-154 Rifleman and AN/PRC-155 Manpack radios under the Army’s Handheld Manpack and Small Form Fit networking radios program.
Wheeler has been with General Dynamics C4 Systems for more than 32 years and has worked in a wide variety of functional areas, such as engineering, program management, business development and sales. She holds a bachelor’s degree in chemistry from Regis College and masters’ degrees in business from Framingham State College and in advanced studies from Boston College.
The WIN-T program is an essential component of the Army's network modernization plan, which is intended to give commanders and soldiers unprecedented access to voice, video and data.
