He succeeds Jerry Agee, who will retire from MBDA Inc. this month after four years at the helm, MBDA said Thursday.

At Orbital, Webster has served on the board of directors since the company’s launch and also has served as chairman and CEO of its satellite services subsidiary, business development lead and rocket division systems president.

In the latter role, he led operations in the defense and intelligence business lines including areas such as command and control, network communications and missile systems.

He became deputy president of the sector in 2004 after holding other roles such as deputy general manager for the strategic systems business and the VP and GM positions for intelligence systems and federal enterprise systems.
