John Clark, a 23-year Lockheed Martin (NYSE: LMT) veteran, has been appointed vice president and general manager of the company’s advanced development programs division, also known as Skunk Works.

His appointment is effective April 4 and he will succeed Jeff Babione, who will retire at the end of March after a nearly three-decade career with the aerospace and defense contractor, Lockheed said Monday.
