In November 2020, Barry McKinney, Senior Vice President, retired after more than 15 years at AIS. McKinney and his growing family made this decision together and are looking forward to making new memories.
“With children and grandchildren now spanning from Alaska to England, the timing just felt right for me and my wife Kathy,” said McKinney. “I’ve had the honor of helping AIS grow from a small local business with three employees to an industry leader with a national presence. It has been a long, rewarding journey working my way up to the leadership team; from late night proposal writing to building programs and office pranks and parties, I will remember these days forever.”
AIS culture has provided employees the opportunity to take the uncertainty of change and turn it into greatness. Because of this culture, McKinney was able to grow tremendously both personally and professionally and watched as many others did the same.
“My hope is that employees at all levels embrace our culture and seize the opportunities before them. Looking back on my time at AIS and 32 years supporting the U.S. Department of Defense in general, it’s clear that hard work, saying yes to opportunities and trusting your team all contribute to a successful career and life.”
