She is also a former executive at URS, tasked with leading the company’s global security group.

She started her career working for Nichols Research, which was acquired by Computer Sciences Corp. in 2000.

A well-recognized leader, Bruning has received numerous accolades throughout her career, including the American Business Association Gold Stevie Award for Female Executive of the Year and the Wash100 award from Executive Mosaic.

After graduating from Illinois with her bachelor’s degree in mechanical engineering, Bruning attended the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, where she earned her master’s degree in mechanical engineering.
