Northrop Grumman’s Joseph Greaney Talks Overcoming Challenges

Joseph Greaney

Northrop Grumman (NYSE: NOC) Information Systems executive Joseph Greaney sat down with ExecutiveBiz to discuss a range of topics, including overcoming challenges.

“One of my initial challenges when I arrived at Northrop was to integrate our business here in Maryland with the larger Northrop enterprise, ” Greaney said. “Historically, my organization consists of some legacy Northrop employees and two small businesses that were purchased by Northrop Grumman approximately four years ago. Integrating these somewhat disparate workforces into one team was my first challenge. I believe we have accomplished that goal. My next challenge is,  with the recent Base Realignment and Closure (BRAC) changes and the growth in the Intelligence Community,   we find ourselves challenged to get enough qualified, cleared, technical talent.  I think a lot of companies have this challenge, including our government customers. In this geographical area, we have to be innovative in how we can continue to attract qualified technical talent.” 

“We’re strengthening our affiliations with some of the local colleges: University of Maryland Baltimore County (UMBC), University of Maryland College Park, Virginia Tech and other strong engineering and computer science programs, ” he said. “We are working with Anne Arundel Community College on their cyber programs and we are trying to hire experienced, not presently cleared people to work on some of our research and development programs.”
