I am truly grateful for Bill’s years of dedicated service and commitment to Intergraph, and I am privileged to call him a close friend and valued adviser.”

Holly said, “Intergraph’s unique ability to link together spatial and location-based expertise and technologies has established the company as a leader in the national defense and security markets.  I look forward to joining this incredibly talented team and contributing to Intergraph’s continued growth in this critical industry for our nation’s security.”

Holly recently retired from the U.S. Army where he previously served as deputy director of the Missile Defense Agency in Washington, D.C., directing the 7,000-person Department of Defense agency; while concurrently serving as the program executive officer for the Ballistic Missile Defense System. Prior to serving as deputy director of the Missile Defense Agency, Holly served as program director for the Ground-based Midcourse Defense Joint Program office of the Missile Defense Agency, where he was charged with leading the government and industry team that built the cornerstone of the U.S. Ballistic Missile Defense system.
