Former FBI official Ralph Tursi has been appointed as senior director of General Dynamics Information Technology’s law enforcement business.

The company announced Thursday that Tursi, who will oversee strategy, program delivery and information technology services, will support the Department of Justice.

John Ludecke, GDIT vice president and general manager for federal civilian agencies, said Tursi’s “leadership and mission knowledge will be instrumental in delivering innovative technologies to our customers as they continue to accelerate their IT modernization goals.”

Tursi spent 20 years with the FBI, where he was the deputy assistant director of the agency’s human resources division. He was in charge of human capital management, strategy and customer service for the agency’s workforce, GDIT said.

Previously, he headed East Asia intelligence in the FBI’s counterintelligence division, overseeing the collection of national intelligence to counter the theft of critical technologies and intellectual property by foreign adversaries.

In the said role, Tursi served as the FBI’s senior executive to the National Security Council and was part of the Committee on Foreign Investment in the United States.

A mechanical engineer by profession, Tursi spent nearly 15 years with the Naval Sea Systems Command.
