Peerless Technologies Corporation has named James (Jamie) Gateau, a former Navy officer and information technology executive, as its new Chief Growth Officer (CGO).

“Jamie’s unique skill set, along with his experience in sales, business development and in running large-scale IT projects makes him a great fit to position Peerless to win new business and move the company to the next level,” said Peerless President Andrea Kunk. “I look forward to the fresh perspective he will bring.”

Gateau replaces Michael Bridges, former president of Peerless, who assumed the CGO role on an interim basis in March 2021. As CGO, Gateau will lead a team tasked with developing strategies for Peerless to identify opportunities and win new business. And, as the newest member of the Executive Team, he will help shape the future direction of the defense contractor.

“I’m excited to contribute to Peerless as it moves from a small company to a large one,” Gateau said. “I know together we can achieve great things.”

After graduating from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute with a degree in aeronautical engineering, Gateau served as a Naval Aviator, flying the F/A-18 Hornet and H-3 Sea King. In 2003, he transitioned to Navy IT, serving in roles of increasing responsibility. Following his retirement from the Navy in 2016, Gateau worked for defense and IT companies, including AT&T.

Along with his degree from Rensselaer, Gateau hold an MS in Information Systems and Operations from the Naval Postgraduate School and an MBA from University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. Gateau lives with his wife of 16 years, Kim, in East Dorset, Vermont.
