Tom Wilson to Succeed Blake Larson as Northrop Space Systems Sector Head

Tom Wilson, a sector vice president at Northrop Grumman (NYSE: NOC), has been appointed to serve as a corporate VP and president of the company’s space systems sector starting Jan. 1.

He will succeed Blake Larson, who intends to retire from the company on Feb. 4 after a four-decade career and will support the transition until the date of retirement, Northrop said Thursday.

Wilson joined the Falls Church, Virginia-based defense and aerospace technology provider upon its 2018 acquisition of Orbital ATK, where he previously spent 17 years that included time at ATK.

He manages Northrop’s strategic space systems division in his current role and previously oversaw strategy and business development functions within the space systems sector.

A University of Maryland graduate, Wilson also worked for the Department of Defense earlier in his career.
