Washington Operations Continues Restructuring, Fills Four Posts For Better Customer Service
BETHESDA, MD, 26-MAY-00 -- Lockheed Martin Corporation (NYSE:LMT) today announced additional steps in the restructuring of its Washington Operations, which began in September 1999. Designed to further improve the corporation's service to its federal government customers, the moves, effective today, involve several additions to Washington Operations' management team in legislative affairs, security policy, budgetary affairs, and systems integration. In taking these next steps, said Lockheed Martin's Washington Operations Vice President Brian D. Dailey, we are refining the customer-service focus we have concentrated on for the past year and improving our ability to serve the needs of our customers.
David H. Morrison joins Lockheed Martin as Vice President, Legislative Affairs. He will be the manager and principal liaison between the corporation and Capitol Hill, to include the House of Representatives, the Senate, the General Accounting Office, the Congressional Budget Office, and the Congressional Research Service, as well as appropriate party committees and issue caucuses. Mr. Morrison previously served with the Office of Management and Budget where he was Deputy Associate Director for National Security. Prior to joining OMB, he served on Capitol Hill as a professional staff member on the Senate Appropriations Committee.
William B. Inglee has been named Vice President, Security Policy. He joins Washington Operations having served the Speaker of the House Dennis Hastert, where he was a key advisor on national security and trade policy. He has also served on the House Appropriations Committee and the House International Relations Committee. From 1990 to 1993, Mr. Inglee held the position of Acting Assistant Secretary of Defense for International Security Policy among other senior positions in the Pentagon. For Lockheed Martin, he will be responsible for the corporation's relationship with the Executive Branch of the U.S. government, to include the Office of the Secretary of Defense, the Joint Staff, and other Executive Branch agencies.
Ann Sauer has been appointed Washington Operations' Director, General Legislation and Budgetary Affairs. She joins Lockheed Martin from the office of Senator John McCain, where she was Legislative Director. Previously, she held a variety of positions on Capitol Hill for more than 22 years, including serving on the personal staffs of three senior U.S. Senators and as a professional staff member to the Senate Armed Services Committee.
Concurrent with these changes, Washington Operations' Systems Integration organization has been restructured to better support Lockheed Martin's drive to provide improved customer focus. This business area has been divided into two marketing and legislative teams: One supporting Navy/Marine Corps and Air Force Systems Integration programs, and the other supporting Army and Civil Systems Integration programs.
Carol Hulgus has been named Vice President of the Navy/Marine Corps/Air Force team. She joins Lockheed Martin from Rockwell-Collins where she had responsibilities for Washington-based business development activities. Her appointment represents a concentration of all naval and air force systems integration tasks into one organization that can more readily exploit the system of systems approach the corporation has been evolving over the last year.
In an expansion of his current responsibilities overseeing government affairs for technology services, information systems and federal civil agencies, William W. Hansen, Vice President, Washington Operations for Technology Services, will lead the new Army and Civil Agency Systems Integration team. This expanded responsibility will ensure the oversight of emerging systems integration and services-related tasks resulting in a more comprehensive approach to the full range of U.S. government customers.
Charles Kupperman, currently Vice President, Air Force Space Programs and Space Systems, also has been given added responsibilities for all government affairs of space-related systems and is named Vice President, Washington Operations for Space and Strategic Programs. Dr. Kupperman will work to strengthen the corporation's relationship with intelligence- and defense-community customers.
John Wildfong will continue in his role as Washington Operations Vice President of Fixed-Wing Aviation and Gerald Musarra will continue to manage Lockheed Martin's trade and regulatory affairs along with the corporation's government affairs in its Global Telecommunications line of business.
