The World Trade Center Institute (WTCI) has named three new members to its board of directors — Heather Kiriakou of Northrop Grumman Corporation, Clayton Millis of BD Diagnostics Systems, and Annie Sennet of Saft America.
The trio join a respected group of global business executives and thought leaders, bringing the board’s total to 41 members, of which 44% are women.
Kiriakou is the director of global strategy & business development at Northrop Grumman Corporation. In her role, she monitors trends in the international marketplace and uses her observations to inform the company’s global pursuits. She previously spent time in Northrop Grumman’s Aerospace Systems sector. Before joining Northrop Grumman, Kiriakou spent over a decade working for the U.S. Government, where her focus was on national security and counterterrorism.
Millis is the vice president of Global Technical Services at BD Diagnostics Systems. He works to develop, grow and commercialize the advanced systems produced by the medical technology company. He joined BD as the director of Global Product Support in 2016, deploying new technology in support of the company’s digital transformation. Millis launched his career at Toyota and quickly became a regional record breaker within the automaker’s field sales team.
Sennet is the president and CEO of Saft America Inc. and the executive vice president of Saft’s Space & Defense Division. Her involvement with Saft’s research and development team ensures the next generation of batteries are equipped to support interstellar and defense technologies. Sennet began her career at Gates batteries, which Saft purchased in 1994. Soon after the acquisition, Sennet spent four years in France working at the company’s overseas research center before returning to Maryland.
