Harley To Help BGS Grow
Oak Ridge, Tennessee-November 15, 2023 – Boston Government Services, LLC (BGS), headquartered in Oak Ridge, TN, has hired a new Vice President of Business Development.
Christine M. Harley has more than 30 years of business development and operational experience with engineering, environmental, and services firms – addressing a wide range of markets, service areas, and project types. Most recently, she served as president of Lane Power & Energy Solutions, Inc. (LPES), where she held overall responsibility for corporate operations and financial performance. Prior to LPES, she spent 17 years with WSP supporting the Industrial/Energy and Federal divisions’ business development efforts as Vice President.
“Her broad experience and exceptional track record will be an incredible asset to BGS as we continue to grow and evolve,” said BGS Founder and CEO Dr. Harry Boston.
She is experienced in leading corporate operations, creating and managing corporate and market strategy, leading business development efforts and communications programs, and negotiating contracts. She offers an in-depth understanding of federal programs and has supported compliance of federal opportunities and ongoing contracts for decades.
“BGS is an incredibly exciting opportunity,” said Harley. “I admire the way that have linked different sectors and found more ways to serve companies. We may start helping someone with nuclear solutions, but then find they need cybersecurity support as well. Growing work with existing customers will be part of our strategy. And obviously, gaining new clients will be a key.”
Harley is a proven communicator gained through the technical writing and editing of proposals, presentations, client deliverables, reports, training, advertising, and community outreach materials. Harley holds a Bachelor’s degree in Economics from Smith College and completed the WOMEN Unlimited LEAD Program, a year-long executive leadership development course.
