Marillyn Hewson, Lockheed Martin chairman, president and CEO, recently spoke with Bloomberg’s Peter Cook about a range of topics, including how international sales fit into the Bethesda, Md.-based aerospace, defense and security contractor’s future plans and her perspective on the current budget environment.
“I must say I’m very encouraged that we do have two years of stability now and what it does help is our customers and industry to be able to better plan for the future, ” Hewson told Cook. “That was very important with this current budget that was put in place.”
Hewson added that “sequestration is still not good public policy and so I would like to see it rescinded. I hope that our lawmakers will take the actions they need to so that we can address our long-term fiscal stability problems without having across the board cuts.”
