Holly Freedlander, corporate controller of Xator since September 2019, has been promoted to serve as chief financial officer at the Reston, Virginia-based security and intelligence services provider starting May 1, 2021.
She will succeed the retiring Matt Galaski, who has led the company’s overall financial operations since 2014 and led the financing process for eight acquisition deals during his tenure as CFO, Xator said Friday.
Freedlander most recently served as general manager of corporate operations finance at Mitre and previously held financial leadership roles at Temeku Technologies Inc., Atlas Research Corp. and Spacenet.
Her longest stint was at ManTech (Nasdaq: MANT), where she spent nearly 12 years and worked as vice president of finance within the mission, cyber and technology services business.
The certified public accountant started her career at Ernst & Young as an audit manager.
Freedlander holds a bachelor’s degree in accounting and international business from Penn State University and an MBA from the University of Maryland Robert H. Smith School of Business.
