Mercury Systems’ board of directors has elected former long-time Lockheed Martin executive Orlando Carvalho as a new member.
Carvalho’s election means Mercury’s board has nine members with eight of them being independent directors, the defense electronics maker said Tuesday.
He retired from Lockheed in 2018 after a 38-year career there and most recently was executive vice president of its aeronautics segment. Carvalho is also a former EVP for the F-35 program.
