Sentek Global, a provider of government and commercial technology programs, announced the promotion of retired Rear Adm. Hamlin Tallent as its new president.

Jason Galetti has moved up to assume the vice president of operations role as the company hired its new heads of human resources, finance and contract management departments.

"Hamlin and Jason have been integral parts of this company nearly since our inception a dozen years ago," said Eric Basu, CEO of Sentek Global. "They have worked in the trenches and learned all aspects of our business from the ground up. Their leadership skills are proven and will serve the company well as we continue to pursue our goals to expand our services that now include certification training and commercial offerings. Their new roles have raised the quality of our leadership team to a level not previously possible."

Sentek Global has hired Connie Marshall to direct the company's human resource initiatives, Jeff Silva to spearhead the finance department and Jeanette Porter as the company's head of contracts management.

Tallent previously served as Sentek Global's vice president of operations and vice president of C4ISR systems. His last active duty position in the U.S. Navy was as director of operations for the U.S. European Command where he was responsible for advising the commander on all operational issues, including command and control of U.S. forces in the organization's area of responsibility from Norway to South Africa.

Prior to assuming the role of vice president of operations, Galetti served as the department's assistant VP and also served for seven years as the company's program director where he spearheaded the government client practice at Joint Tactical Radio System, a U.S. Department of Defense program to implement software-defined radios across the U.S. and coalition militaries.

With more than 30 years of experience providing financial and accounting support, process improvement, integration of financial systems and regulatory reporting, Silva has predominantly worked for corporations providing services to the Department of Defense. Marshall possesses more than 15 years of human resources management experience. Her areas of expertise include benefits, compensation, employee relations, recruitment and staffing, succession planning, performance management, training and leadership development. Porter holds more than 20 years of in-depth experience, and is a Certified Professional Contracts Manager.
