Mike Greenley

Mike Greenley, formerly sector president at L3 Technologies’ (NYSE: LLL) Wescam subsidiary, has been appointed group president of Maxar Technologies’ (NYSE: MAXR) MDA business unit in a move that takes effect Jan. 15.

Greenley will directly report to Howard Lance, Maxar president and CEO, and oversee MDA’s approximately 1,900 employees and business lines in the areas of surveillance and intelligence, robotics and automation and satellite subsystems across Canada through its office in Brampton, Ontario, MDA said Wednesday.

Lance said Greenley has over two decades of leadership experience in the defense and aerospace sector in Canada and abroad and will help strengthen MDA’s partnership with the Canadian government, commercial clients and employees.

Greenley said he plans to leverage MDA’s deep domain experience and Maxar’s portfolio to advance technology investment and broaden exports to global markets.

Prior to L3 Wescam, Greenley worked at CAE for three years as vice president and general manager with responsibility over the Canadian company’s defense and security business.

He previously served as VP for international business at General Dynamics’ (NYSE: GD) mission systems business and prior to that, held the role of VP of modeling and simulation at CAE.

He is former board chairman of the Canadian Association of Defence and Security Industries and former chair of the industry advisory board of Canada’s department of foreign affairs and international trade.

Maxar officially launched in October 2017 after MacDonald, Dettwiler and Associates completed its $3.6 billion acquisition of DigitalGlobe.
