He will report to Mike Twyman, vice president and general manager of Northrop’s defense systems division.
Camacho will also lead Northrop’s global efforts to expand its military and civilian infrastructure protection systems.
Camacho most recently served as director of Northrop’s critical infrastructure and force protection operating unit. He previously directed the company’s information technology solutions business unit.
“Pat has been on the forefront of our company’s ability to deliver technology innovation with speed and agility,” Twyman said. “His experience and strategic vision will serve us well as we continue to solve our customers’ most pressing problems.”
