Larry Flynn, a 20-year General Dynamics (NYSE: GD) veteran, has been appointed executive vice president for the corporation’s aerospace segment.
He will assume the position from his current role as president of General Dynamics subsidiary Gulfstream Aerospace and succeed Joseph Lombardo beginning on July 1, the company said Friday.
Flynn has led Gulfstream since August 2011 and previously oversaw the unit’s marketing, sales and product support operations.
He also worked in leadership roles at Stevens Aviation, Signature Flight Support and AMR Combs before he moved to General Dynamics in 1995.
General Dynamics chose 32-year company veteran Mark Burns to be Gulfstream’s next president.
Burns has been Gulfstream’s product support head since June 2008 and has also served as a VP for customer support and for completions engineering within the organization.
M. Amy Gilliland, currently vice president of human resources for General Dynamics, will succeed the retiring Walter Oliver as senior VP for human resources and administration.
Her appointment is effective April 1 and she will report directly to CEO Phebe Novakovic.
Gilliland, a U.S. Navy veteran, joined the company in 2005 and served as staff VP for investor relations and director for strategic planning before she took the HR VP position.
