Allen Named Director Of MDTSCO Washington Operations Divison
Richard J. Allen, formerly fiscal management director of McDonnell Douglas Technical Services Company (MDTSCO), has been appointed director of the firm's new Washington (D.C.) Operations Division. He replaces Charles A. Jacobson, who was recently promoted to the position of acting director of MDTSCO.
Mr. Allen joined MDTSCO in 1982 after serving as center controller for the Marshall Space Flight Center in Huntsville, Ala., for five years. He began his government service with the National Aeronautics and Space Administration in 1963 as part of the Gemini Program. The Washington Operations Division, formerly a component of McDonnell Douglas Automation Company, was transferred to MDTSCO in February this year. The division, with offices in Rockville, Md., Arlington, Va., and Bremerton, Wash., has a long-time association with a broad range of naval clients, most notably the Naval Sea Systems Command.
