Lockheed shifts missile segment leader to new role

Lockheed Martin has shifted the head of its missiles and fire control segment to lead the rotary and mission systems unit that houses much of the defense company’s cybersecurity and "C4ISR" portfolio.

Bethesda, Maryland-based Lockheed said Monday that Executive Vice President Frank St. John, who has led the missile segment for a year-and-a-half, will move over to EVP of the rotary and mission systems segment on Aug. 26 and succeed current division lead Dale Bennett.

Bennett will retire from Lockheed at the end of this year after service as an adviser to the company’s executive leadership team. He has led rotary and mission systems for seven years and joined the company in 1981.

St. John has worked at Lockheed for more than 30 years. His role as EVP of the missiles and fire control segment will be taken up by Scott Greene, who is currently vice president of the tactical and strike missiles line.

This is the second major executive move Lockheed has announced within its rotary and mission systems unit over the past month. In mid-June, Lockheed promoted Doug Laurendeau to lead strategy and business development for the segment and succeed Barry McCullough, who plans to retire in September.

Rotary and mission systems revenue totaled $14.2 billion last year, or roughly one-fourth of overall corporate sales.
