Roderick McLean, vice president and general manager of the integrated fighter group at Lockheed Martin (NYSE: LMT), has been appointed to succeed George Shultz as VP and GM for the company’s air mobility and maritime missions organization.
Lockheed said Thursday McLean will manage C-130, C-5, LM-100J and P-3 programs while leading the firm’s Marietta, Ga., site as well as its sub-assembly facilities in Mississippi and West Virginia.
The 25-year company veteran assumed his current position in May 2013.
Bridget Lauderdale, most recently VP of F-35 global sustainment, will replace McLean as head of IFG and oversee F-16 and F-22 programs in her new position.
Her three-decade career at Lockheed also includes time as senior VP of corporate strategy and business development and VP for aeronautics operations.
Michele Evans, executive VP of Lockheed’s aeronautics segment, said both McLean and Lauderdale bring strategic planning experience as the company aims to identify new opportunities for its fighter and air mobility programs.
Both appointments will take effect April 15.
