Andrea Wagner, who previously held human resources leadership roles at TE Connectivity and Bombardier, will formally join Aerojet Rocketdyne as chief HR officer on March 2.
The three-decade industry and military veteran will also be an officer of Aerojet Rocketdyne's parent holding company, the propulsion technology provider said Tuesday.
Wagner will also work with the firm's business unit and center of excellence executives in his new capacity.
He previously served as HR vice president at TE Connectivity's aerospace, defense and marine group, and as HR director at Bombardier's transportation division.
Before he joined the private sector, Wagner spent 12 years in the German military as a squadron commander.
