PAE CEO John Heller Resigns

John Heller

PAE Inc., a Falls Church-based government contractor, has appointed Charles Peiffer as its interim president and CEO starting Friday, March 19, following the resignation this week of John Heller, who had led the company since 2013.

Peiffer is PAE’s executive vice president and chief financial officer.

Heller, who joined PAE from Engility Corp., resigned as president and CEO for personal reasons, according to PAE. During his tenure, PAE grew from $1.6 billion in annual revenue to $2.76 billion. It made several purchases that have expanded its offerings for national security customers, and the company also went public in early 2020 through its own acquisition by a special purpose acquisition company, or SPAC.
