Sean Stackley Promoted to Lead L3’s New Comms & Networked Systems Segment; Christopher Kubasik Quoted

Sean Stackley

Sean Stackley, formerly corporate vice president for strategic advanced programs and technology at L3 Technologies (NYSE: LLL), has been named corporate senior VP and president of the company’s newly created communications and networked systems segment.

He succeeds Andrew Ivers, a 13-year L3 veteran who is set to retire by the end of 2018, and will oversee the new segment that combines the company’s maritime businesses with its communications systems division, L3 said Monday.

Christopher Kubasik, L3 chairman, president and CEO, said Stackley’s engineering experience, policy knowledge and client focus would help accelerate the delivery of mission-focused and agile platforms to clients as the company realigns its business portfolio in support of the U.S. Navy’s distributed maritime operations.

Stackley joined L3 in January from the Navy, where he served as acting secretary and assistant secretary for research, development and acquisition for nine years.

His 40-year public service career included time as a staff member at the Senate Armed Services Committee and surface warfare officer with involvement in the Navy’s ship design, program management and construction.
