Red Cell Adds Former Northrop CEO Wes Bush to Board of Directors

Wes Bush, former CEO of Northrop Grumman (NYSE: NOC), has been appointed a member of the board of directors and an adviser at venture capital firm Red Cell Partners.

Red Cell said Friday his addition to the board to extend the company’s defense sector connection and increase its ability to bring new technology to the national security and health care markets.

Bush led Northrop as its president and chief executive for nine years beginning in 2010 and added the chairman title in 2011.

He started at the Falls Church, Virginia-based aerospace and defense contractor upon its 2002 acquisition of TRW’s global aeronautical systems unit, where he previously held the president and CEO roles.

The nearly four-decade industry veteran concurrently serves on the boards of Cisco, General Motors and Dow.

Bush was selected four times to the Wash100, Executive Mosaic’s annual list of the most esteemed faces and voices in the GovCon sector.
