(EASTGATE) - STIMULUS Engineering, with multiple locations including offices at EastGate Technology & Business Center in Bedford, is pleased to announce the promotion of Doug West to the position of Sr. Director of Navy Programs.

West joined STIMULUS Engineering as Program Manager responsible for developing a more efficient and effective sustainment process for NSWC Crane's Maritime Electronic Warfare systems and programs. As Sr. Director of Navy Programs, West will be responsible for bolstering STIMULUS Engineering's position within the Crane community as well as fostering new relationships throughout the Department of the Navy that will allow STIMULUS to branch out into new areas.

West believes that "it is crucial to work closely with our current customers in order to best align talent and expertise, which in turn will allow STIMULUS to better meet the growing demands of future customer requirements for specialized capabilities."

Prior to joining the private sector, West served as an Electronic Warfare Technician with the U.S. Navy. Discharged honorably as a Disabled Veteran in 1988.

He is very involved in professional organizations as well as community service. West was one of the founding members and Board of Directors of the Service Disabled Veteran Owned Small Business Council (SDVOSB) where he served as Secretary for 4 years, and has been part of the Armed Forces Communications and Electronics Association (AFCEA). He also works closely with local schools leading fundraising efforts for school materials and is part of several leadership/advisory committees established to improve student opportunities and experiences at school.
