Former marine joined strategy consultancy in 2015

Booz Allen Hamilton has appointed Nicholas Veasey as its new investor relations director, reporting to CFO Lloyd Howell, effective June 30.

Veasey will succeed Curt Riggle, who is moving on to lead internal financial education at the NYSE-listed strategy consultancy firm.

A graduate of the United States Naval Academy and former marine reconnaissance platoon commander, Veasey served as an investment banker at Deutsche Bank in New York before joining Booz Allen in 2015.

Most recently, he had been serving as the McLean, Virginia-headquartered firm’s director of M&A, where he was ‘leading acquisition execution, and designing and implementing the firm’s capital allocation strategy,’ according to a company release.

‘Nick brings an invaluable mix of professional experience to his new investor relations role that will serve the firm well as we execute the next phases of our growth strategy,’ says Howell in the release. ‘We offer tremendous thanks to Curt Riggle, who has built our investor program from the ground up following our IPO. Through this work, he has helped to articulate Booz Allen’s exciting growth story and has generated great respect for the firm and himself in the industry. We look forward to benefiting from Curt’s continuing contribution to our success in his new role.’

The consultancy major, which employs more than 24,000 people globally, was listed by its former owner Carlyle Group in 2010, and had revenues of $5.8 bn for the 12 months ended March 31, 2017.
