Diane Mahoney, Senior Program Manager, IDS

As a senior program manager for IDS Engineering's Advanced Technology organization, Diane Mahoney is responsible for enabling growth in the environmental systems integration focus area while working with customers and business partners to develop and capture new contract research and development programs. Mahoney supports and manages a broad portfolio of programs and pursuits within Advanced Technology. An important piece of this includes the Ocean Observatories Initiative work Raytheon provides to the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution.

Mahoney's background is unique. It includes training and experience in biology, accounting and management. She spent her first few years out of college doing research in the southern wetlands. She returned to school because she saw the need for someone who could facilitate interactions between disciplines. She especially thought this to be true for chemists and biologists. "I've been fortunate enough to have had exposure to widely different work cultures (public accounting, research, defense) and that diversity is important in my current role," Mahoney notes, commenting on her past experience. "Having that exposure has helped me in understanding what motivates people so that together we can come up with a sound, creative, cost-effective solution for the customer."

As a Focus Area Lead, Mahoney is constantly learning from and interacting with people. "I've been able to work with some really cool technology and insightful, dedicated colleagues, collaborators and customers. What excites me the most about working for Raytheon is learning about new technologies and seeing how they can be applied to solving complex and challenging problems."
