Alic rejoins Insitu from Adidas in Germany, where she served as senior vice president of global operations, strategy and programs. Prior to Adidas, she held a number of senior executive positions in business, finance and engineering at organizations ranging from start-ups to Fortune 50 companies.

Those positions included a series of roles at Boeing, where she was in charge of strategy for the global services market and global sales for unmanned systems; Insitu, where she was responsible for corporate strategy, global operations and international growth and partnerships among other focus areas; and Visa, where she was a vice president of finance.

Alic will be located at Insitu headquarters in Bingen. She succeeds Ryan Hartman, who stepped down in February, citing personal reasons.

Insitu provides information for superior decision making, a news release states. With offices in the U.S., U.K., and Australia, the company creates and supports unmanned systems and software technology that deliver end-to-end solutions for collecting, processing and understanding sensor data.

They serve the needs of global customers in the defense, government and commercial industries. To date, their systems have accumulated one million flight hours and 130,000 sorties. Insitu is a wholly owned subsidiary of The Boeing Company. For more information, visit
