Northrop Grumman Reveals Organizational, Leadership Changes
Northrop Grumman revealed organization changes to its operating sectors to better align the company’s broad portfolio to serve its customers’ needs. In addition, Patrick Antkowiak, corporate vice president and chief strategy and technology officer, and Christopher Jones, corporate vice president and president of technology services, have announced their intent to retire. The changes are not expected to have a material impact on the company’s 2019 financial results or guidance as updated in July 2019.
The four operating sectors will be: Aeronautics Systems, a manned and unmanned air system provider; Defense Systems, a provider of critical technology services, sustainment, and modernization, including integrated battle command systems, directed energy, tactical weapons, and information systems; Mission Systems, specializing in open, software-defined systems for defense and intelligence applications across multiple domains; and Space Systems, a space and launch systems provider serving national security, civil, and commercial customers.
“This new operating structure allows us to take full advantage of our company’s portfolio by aligning businesses that have shared markets, customers and technologies,” said Kathy Warden, chairman, chief executive officer and president of Northrop Grumman. “It will accelerate our ability to rapidly identify and deliver the technologies, products and services our customers need, and fuel our continued growth and execution.”
