Janis Pamiljans to Succeed Thomas Vice as Northrop’s Aerospace Systems Corporate VP, President

Janis Pamiljans

Janis Pamiljans, general manager of strategic systems at Northrop Grumman’s (NYSE: NOC) aerospace systems business, has been elected by the board of directors to serve as corporate vice president and president of the firm’s aerospace systems business.

Thomas Vice

Pamiljans will succeed the retiring Thomas Vice on April 1 and report to Wes Bush, Northrop’s chairman, CEO and president, the company said Monday.

Vice, a 31-year company veteran, previously served as corporate VP and president of Northrop’s technical services sector and currently sits on the board of advisers of Purdue University’s School of Astronautics and Aeronautics and Florida Institute of Technology’s board of trustees.

Pamiljans will oversee the company’s Redondo Beach, California-based aerospace systems sector that provides unmanned and manned aerial systems to the national security market and operates with approximately 23,000 employees across California, New York and Florida.

He has been with Northrop for three decades and has worked on the B-2 bomber program as well as drone and manned aircraft systems.

Pamiljans’ appointment comes more than a year after Northrop won a contract to build the U.S. Air Force‘s Long Range Strike Bomber aircraft.
