“Palmdale produces critical elements of several significant manned and unmanned aircraft and is the home of the groundbreaking F-35 Integrated Assembly Line, ” Tomlinson added.
Most recently, McGlade served as program director for the St. Augustine site’s E-2/C-2 international programs and joined the company in 1986.
Reynolds is a 25 year manufacturing and production operations veteran and most recently served as director of manufacturing operations and deputy site manager for the Palmdale site.
