BETHESDA, MD, November 25th, 2002 -- Craig R. Quigley has been appointed vice president, communications and public affairs, for Lockheed Martin Naval Electronics & Surveillance Systems. Quigley most recently served as Deputy Assistant Secretary of Defense (Public Affairs) at the Pentagon, retiring from the U.S. Navy with the rank of Rear Admiral following a distinguished 27-year career. In his new capacity, Quigley will be responsible for all communications activities - including media relations, advertising, marketing communications, community relations and employee communications - for Lockheed Martin's Naval Electronics & Surveillance Systems (NE&SS) business segment. Principal NE&SS facilities are located in Baltimore, Maryland; Eagan, Minnesota; Moorestown, New Jersey; Syracuse, New York; and Manassas, Virginia.
"With his customer insight and extensive experience in strategic communications, Craig Quigley brings an important new dimension to NE&SS and will strengthen our ability to serve our customers as an integrated organization," said NE&SS President Fred P. Moosally.
As Deputy Assistant Secretary of Defense (Public Affairs), Quigley managed external media relations for the Department of Defense, provided public affairs guidance to senior civilian appointees and military officers, and frequently led briefings to the Pentagon press corps. From late last year until June, he also served as Acting Director of Public Affairs for the U.S. Central Command, developing a strategic communications program for the military organization in charge of the war against terrorism in Afghanistan. Quigley earlier was Special Assistant for Public Affairs to Navy Secretaries John Dalton and Richard Danzig and, before entering public affairs, was a surface warfare officer. He is a graduate of the United States Naval Academy at Annapolis.
Lockheed Martin NE&SS provides surface ship and submarine combat systems, antisubmarine warfare and ocean surveillance systems, radar and sensor systems, missile launching systems, precision munitions, ship systems integration and systems engineering services, and other advanced systems and services to customers worldwide.
