Organizational Changes/Leadership Alignment

In 2015, we announced future structural changes to better align our business with the evolving needs of customers and enhance innovation across the company. The main changes (effective January 1, 2016) include:

Streamlining our business sectors from four to three: Aerospace Systems, Missions Systems and Technology Services.

We merged elements of three former sectors (Electronic Systems, Information Systems and Technical Services) into two new sectors: Mission Systems, led by Kathy Warden, corporate vice president and president; and Technology Services, led by Chris Jones, corporate vice president and president. Our third sector, Aerospace Systems, continues to be led by Tom Vice, corporate vice president and president.

As a part of these realignments:
• Military and civil space hardware business in Azusa, California, joined the Aerospace Systems sector.
• Electronic attack business moved to the Mission Systems sector.

Gloria Flach, who was previously corporate vice president and president of the Electronic Systems sector, is in this important role.

"These changes align more closely with the evolving missions of our customers in the global security markets we serve," said Wes Bush, chairman, chief executive officer and president. "I am pleased that we have strong leadership in place, and I look forward to working with them to continue to deliver top performance for our shareholders, customers and employees."
