Canvas is pleased to announce two new key positions to continue enhancing our corporate infrastructure in preparation for future anticipated growth.
DIRECTOR OF OPERATIONS
CANVAS, CORPORATE OFFICE
Canvas is proud to announce Mally Cash, who has over 10 years of missile defense industry experience, coupled with strong leadership experience, as our new Director of Operations.
In 2010, Mally, launched her career working for a small defense contractor in Huntsville, supporting Global Deployment at the Missile Defense Agency (MDA). Her time in Global Deployment shaped her path ahead and gave her a passion for providing vital capabilities to the Warfighter.
In 2011, Mally transitioned to the MDA Ground Test Directorate, and learned the value of proving our defense capabilities through testing, which quickly became another passion. Staying within the MDA Test Directorate, in 2012 she was given an opportunity to work in Warfighter Operational Support. This position connected both her passion of serving the Warfighter and testing.
In 2014, while working in Warfighter Operational Support, Mally joined Canvas. In 2015, Mally’s strong leadership skills quickly made her a key member of the Canvas leadership team as a Task Lead for our Test, Exercises, and Wargames group where she manages employees in both Huntsville and Colorado Springs. In 2017, she moved to the Advanced Technology Test Directorate at MDA where she continues working part time providing technical and programmatic expertise to her customers.
In her new role as Director of Operations, Mally leads a team of exceptional professionals who focus on the day-to-day operations of Canvas. Focus areas include Contracts, Accounting, Human Resources, Security, Corporate Relations, Contract Operations and Execution – and most importantly – Canvas employees.
