Joseph Dunford, a retired Marine Corps general and a previous Wash100 award winner, will join the board of directors of Lockheed Martin (NYSE: LMT) on Feb. 10.

He will serve on Lockheed’s classified business and security committee and nominating and corporate governance panel, the company said Friday.

Dunford’s “experience in complex, global operations and risk management, including cybersecurity threats, is a tremendous asset and will enhance board oversight in key business areas,” said Marillyn Hewson, Lockheed chairman, president and CEO and a 2020 Wash100 award winner.
