(Nasdaq:MRCY) ( ), a leading provider of commercially developed, secure sensor processing subsystems for critical commercial and defense applications, announced the appointment of Gerald M. Haines II to the position of Executive Vice President, Chief Financial Officer and Treasurer.

"We are pleased to have Gerry assume this new role, where his combination of business and financial acumen and his wealth of experience in strategy, corporate finance and acquisitions will be tremendous assets as we enter the next phase of our growth strategy," said Mercury's President and Chief Executive Officer Mark Aslett. "His drive and leadership abilities, along with his deep expertise and knowledge of Mercury's business, including the businesses we have acquired in recent years, make him especially well-suited for this position as we push to accelerate Mercury's growth. Mercury closed fiscal 2014 with strong momentum, and the operating leverage we have built positions us well for achieving our goals of double-digit top-line growth, even stronger growth in adjusted EBITDA, and for reaching our target business model for fiscal 2015. We remain confident in our recent guidance for our fiscal 2015 first quarter and year," Aslett concluded.
