QinetiQ Names 34-Year Army Vet Rick Lynch to Grow Robotics Business

Qinetiq North America has appointed retired Army Lt. Gen. Rick Lynch as a senior adviser for robotics and warfighter systems, the company announced Wednesday.

The 34-year Army veteran will also provide strategic guidance to the unmanned systems and survivability business units, within the technology solutions group.

Group President J.D. Crouch said Lynch’s experience and knowledge in robotics complements the company’s efforts to deliver that technology to warfighters.

Lynch most recently served as assistant chief of staff and commanding general for the Defense Department’s installation management command.

His Army career includes service as commanding general at Fort Stewart and Fort Hood.

He also held other senior leadership positions supporting U.S. military operations in Iraq and with NATO and Iraq missions.

In February, the company named John Sutton as general manager and executive vice president of the mission and information solutions business unit.

His responsibilities include generating profit and revenue, customer satisfaction and employee health and welfare.
