Three months after being tapped to fill the role, Larry Flynn, to-be executive vice president of General Dynamics’ Aerospace group and current president of GD subsidiary Gulfstream Aerospace Corp., has announced his retirement from the company for health reasons.
He was to replace Joseph Lombardo, who plans on retiring at the end of June 2015.
Mark Burns will take the place of Flynn as president of GD subsidiary Gulfstream Aerospace Corp. No new executive vice president of the GD Aerospace group has been named, and the group will report directly to GD CEO Phebe Novakovic, a company spokesperson said.
Burns joined Gulfstream Aerospace Corp. in 1983, transferring over to General Dynamics when the company was acquired in in the late 1990s. In February 2014, Burns became a GD vice president.
