He brings a proven track record of leading IT, operational and logistics divisions to Involta, empowering organizations to deliver a superior customer experience, increase operational efficiency and drive digital transformation.
“John is an exceptional senior leader who comes to Involta with a wealth of industry experience and expertise across a wide variety of areas, including manufacturing modernization, digital advancement, applications management, strategic planning and much more.

Involta: Meeting Manufacturing’s Compliance Requirements
The appointment of Kehoe comes on the heels of Involta’s completion of the Department of Defense’s Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification (CMMC) and the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) Framework, achieving an impressive Supplier Performance Risk System (SPRS) score of 109/110. The SPRS score is used by the Department of Defense as a major part of the rigorous CMMC evaluation process to assess the risk of a supplier. A standard compliance benchmark for all government contractors, the SPRS score is based on value points related to cybersecurity practices, such as access control, identification, authentication and incident response. A strong SPRS NIST score demonstrates Involta is a low-risk technology partner for government contracts, particularly those in manufacturing.
