Robert A. Carr

Northrop Grumman Corp. (NYSE: NOC) has appointed retired Army Brig. Gen. Robert Carr corporate lead executive for business in Fort Meade and Aberdeen, Md.

The Falls Church, Va.-based company said he will manage business activities there and manage relations with U.S. Defense Department and intelligence customers.

Fort Meade is home to both the National Security Agency and U.S. Cyber Command and the Army tests weapons and technology at Aberdeen Proving Ground.

The 31-year Army veteran will also work with community leaders in support of economic development and philanthropic activities.

He will report to Jack Dorsett, vice president for cybersecurity; command, control, computers and communication; and corporate government relations.

Dorsett said the company appointed Carr for his military leadership experience in intelligence and cyber defense.

Carr previously served in the Defense Intelligence Agency as director for defense and counterintelligence and the DIA’s HUMINT center.

He also served as the J-2 in the NATO-led coalition in Afghanistan between January 2009 and September 2009.

The company also recently named Kenneth Bedingfield as its corporate vice present, controller and chief accounting officer.
