BOULDER, Colo., May 24, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- ColdQuanta, the global quantum ecosystem leader, today announced the addition of former senior intelligence executive Dawn Meyerriecks to its esteemed board of directors. Meyerriecks, eighth to be named to the ColdQuanta board, most recently served as the Deputy Director of the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) for Science & Technology (S&T). She brings more than 30 years of experience pioneering new products and services across both government and technology icons, including the CIA, U.S. Department of Defense and AOL.
"Dawn is a respected leader who brings a wealth of knowledge and global expertise to help us apply our cold atom technical advances to solve some of the world's most complex problems," said Scott Faris, CEO of ColdQuanta. "As we enter our next stage of commercialization and growth, we welcome Dawn's guidance and look forward to the many contributions she will make."
Throughout her career, Meyerriecks spent 15 years at NASA's Jet Propusion Laboratory as a senior engineer and product manager, and a decade with the Defense Information Systems Agency (DISA) as Chief Technology Officer and Technical Director for the Joint Interoperability and Engineering Organization (JIEO). During her assignment at DISA, Meyerriecks was tasked with chartering and leading a new Global Information Grid (GIG) Enterprise Services organization, which is a critical communications infrastructure that safeguards, processes and transmits information that the DoD maintains.
"Anyone who knows me, knows that I'm passionate about people, and a company's mission and technology – in that order, and that's what brought me to ColdQuanta," Meyerriecks said. "The vision and products enticed me, but the people behind the science hooked me. I'm hopeful that my expertise and perspective will help the company further its goal of uniting the world's systems with its transformative quantum technology."
