Sean Stackley, former acting secretary of the U.S. Navy, has been appointed corporate vice president for strategic advanced programs and technology at L3 Technologies (NYSE: LLL).

L3 said Monday Stackley will report to Heidi Wood, senior VP for corporate strategy and technology, and oversee growth strategies intended to synchronize the company’s technology investments with pursuit planning, mergers and acquisitions efforts.
