EverWatch taps Salient vet as new CFO

EverWatch has hired J.D. Kuhn, formerly an executive with Salient CRGT, to be its new chief financial officer.

Kuhn spent nine years as CFO and controller at Salient CRGT, where he oversaw financial operations through organic growth, mergers and acquisitions and integration activities.

During his career, he has worked for private equity backed companies as well as public firms such as Serco, SI International and CACI International.

“J.D. is an experienced executive in building mid-sized national security prime contractors,” said EverWatch CEO John Hillen. “Our aggressive organic and inorganic build requires an executive team with top-notch management skills as well as experience in winning new work and integrating companies on to our platform. J.D. has those qualities in spades.”

EverWatch is backed by private equity firm Enlightenment Capital, which formed the contractor in 2018 through a merger of four other firms. Since then, EverWatch has made a pair of acquisitions.
