LMI Welcomes VADM Rocky Bono and Costa Saab to Board

May 18, 2020

Tysons, VA — LMI has added retired U.S. Navy Vice Admiral Raquel “Rocky” Bono, former director of the Defense Health Agency (DHA), and Constantine “Costa” Saab, former chief strategy officer of the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA), to its board of directors.

LMI Chairman Ken Krieg said, “Rocky and Costa are widely respected leaders who have served our country with distinction. It is a pleasure to welcome them to the board. Their cumulative public service, domain expertise, and management acumen will profoundly inform LMI’s strategic planning, ensuring that we are prepared to help government overcome increasingly complex challenges.”

Vice Adm. Bono, the first female Navy medical officer to achieve three-star rank, retired after four decades in military medicine and health care administration. As the head of DHA from 2015 to 2019, she led a joint agency with significant responsibilities for the delivery of integrated, affordable, and high-quality health services to uniformed, reserve, and retired military personnel and their families. She also helped drive synergy of clinical and business processes across the $50 billion Military Health System. She received her medical degree from the School of Medicine at Texas Tech University’s Health Sciences Center and her bachelor’s degree from the University of Texas at Austin. She is a senior fellow at the Johns Hopkins University Applied Physics Laboratory. In March, Washington Governor Jay Inslee appointed her to head the state’s health system response to COVID-19.

Combining a background in strategy and innovation with a focus on emerging technologies and artificial intelligence, Costa is a managing director at Valor Equity Partners, an operationally driven private equity firm investing in high-growth, technology-enabled, disruptive companies. In 18 years at the CIA, his senior executive roles included chief strategy officer, corporate board member, and acting assistant director. A graduate of the Harvard Business School’s Advanced Management Program, he holds a master’s degree in systems engineering from Virginia Tech and a bachelor’s in electrical engineering from the University of Virginia. He is a non-resident senior fellow at the Atlantic Council.

LMI President and CEO Brian Fitzpatrick said, “LMI is a leader in military healthcare support services and in fostering national security innovation. Today’s announcement affirms this reputation and reinforces our commitment to these critical government missions. I look forward to continuing my work with the board to further LMI’s status as a trusted government partner.”
