Northrop Grumman Corp. has added a new technical services business sector to its corporate structure to focus on providing more integrated product and life-cycle solutions to its clients.
The technical services unit is the defense contractor's eighth business sector. The other seven are electronic systems, IT, integrated systems, mission systems, Newport News, ship systems and space technology.
Headquartered in the Washington area, the technical services sector combines multiple programs and about 10,000 workers in logistics operations from within the company's electronic systems, integrated systems, mission systems and IT sectors.
Its main areas of focus include support services for Northrop Grumman original equipment manufacturer products, nonplatform service opportunities and third-party product support opportunities.
Businesses initially assigned to the new sector are drawn from Northrop Grumman's electronic systems, integrated systems, mission systems and IT sectors.
James L. Cameron has been appointed corporate vice president and president of the technical services sector, and will report directly to Ronald D. Sugar, Northrop Grumman's chairman, chief executive officer and president.
Cameron previously was vice president and general manager of the defensive and navigation systems divisions of the company's electronic systems sector. Before he joined Northrop Grumman in 2003, he held executive positions at ITT Industries Inc., Lockheed Martin Corp., Litton Industries Inc. and the Office of the U.S. Secretary of Defense.
Cameron holds bachelor's and master's degrees in national security administration from the University of Southern California's School of Policy, Planning and Development. He is also an industry graduate of the School of Program Managers at the Defense Systems Management College.
Based in Los Angeles, Northrop Grumman employs more than 125,000 workers and had 2004 revenue of about $29.9 billion. The company ranks No. 2
on Washington Technology's 2005 Top 100
list of federal prime contractors.
