Curtiss-Wright appointed Bamford as the company’s new president and CEO after David Adams announced his retirement from the role in Dec. 2020.
“I am deeply honored by this tremendous opportunity to lead such an iconic company, said Bamford. “I look forward to continuing to work closely with our experienced leadership team and Board, as well as the incredibly talented members of the Curtiss-Wright team, to advance the One Curtiss-Wright vision and build upon our strong track record of growth and profitability.”
Bamford officially took the helm in Jan. 2021 and the company’s succession plan has her taking over as chairperson of the board in May 2022 after Adams steps down from that role as well.
“Looking ahead to 2021, we are projecting mid-to-high single digit growth in sales, Adjusted operating income and Adjusted diluted EPS,” Bamford explained. “This is the first step, ahead of our planned May 2021 investor day, in communicating our new vision and strategy which will drive long-term profitable growth and deliver significant value for our shareholders.”
Executive Mosaic congratulates Lynn Bamford for receiving the most prestigious and coveted award in all of government contracting (GovCon). Her commitment to Curtiss-Wright’s growth strategy perfectly aligns with the drive and vision that the Wash100 Award hopes to recognize in the most significant executives of consequence to the GovCon and federal sectors.
