Ken Bedingfield, currently vice president of corporate finance at Northrop Grumman (NYSE: NOC), has been elected by the board of directors to serve as corporate VP and chief financial officer.

Bedingfield will assume his new positions following the company’s 2014 annual report and oversee financial planning, accounting, internal audit, treasury, contracts and pricing, trust administration and investor relations, Northrop said Monday.

He succeeds James Palmer, who intends to retire next summer, and will report directly to CEO Wes Bush.

Bedingfield has also served as the company’s controller and chief accounting officer and as VP of business management and CFO for the aerospace systems sector.

He is a certified public accountant and has worked at KPMG for 17 years before he moved to Northrop in November 2011.

He holds a bachelor’s degree in accounting from the University of Maryland in College Park.
