Lockheed said Friday Schultz led Sikorsky’s integration into the Lockheed mission systems and training organization as the acquisition moved toward a close last week.
“He brings a wealth of leadership experience and a deep understanding of our international customer base, ” said Marillyn Hewson, Lockheed’s chairman, president and CEO.
She cited Schultz’s work as a former helicopter pilot with the U.S. Marine Corps and head of Lockheed’s helicopter system integration business.
He has also managed the company’s Littoral Combat Ship, U.S. Coast Guard, aviation, information technology, logistics and other programs.
Sikorsky’s headquarters will remain in Stratford, Connecticut.
