For most of 2020, Kahn served as the sector vice president and general manager for Northrop Grumman. Kahn held the role from June 2018 until Sept. 2020. In the same month, he was announced as the president and CEO of Cobham Advanced Electronic Solutions in Sept. 2020.

“This is a great company with an industry leading reputation as a provider of mission-critical and specialized solutions, said Kahn. “I look forward to working with my new colleagues and supporting our customers, as we continue to deliver world leading products.”

More recently, the company unveiled a new logo and shortened its name to CAES in Feb. 2021 in order to demonstrate its transformation into an agile, customer-centric organization focused on meeting customer requirements in the aerospace and defense sectors.

“While the Cobham name does have long standing recognition and denotes a certain legacy, we are excited to be a U.S.-based company with a renewed focus on execution and innovating for our customers,” Kahn noted. “We introduced a more customer-centric and decentralized company structure, sharpened our focus on execution excellence and improved our internal processes to better deliver on our commitments.”

Executive Mosaic offers its congratulations to Mike Kahn and the CAES team for their selection to receive the 2021 Wash100 Award. His commitment to his company’s growth and expansion of its capabilities demonstrates the level of excellence that has become synonymous with the Wash100 Award.
