USTC Holdings, the parent company of Xe Services (formerly Blackwater Worldwide, the private security contractor at the center for several controversies in Iraq), announced Tuesday that Jack Quinn will serve as an “independent director” of the company.

Quinn was the former White House counsel to President Bill Clinton and former

“I am proud to join and help lead Xe at a time when the valuable servicesit provides are most needed by our country,” said Quinn, in a statement. “The men and women of the Company demonstrate their dedication, professionalism and best-in-class service each and every day, and I am honored to support the critical mission they serve.”
