Steve Adlich, former president of Tyonek Native Corp.’s aviation services and manufacturing divisions for the past seven years, has been appointed chief strategy officer at Edge Autonomy.
He will oversee plans and initiatives to advance Edge Autonomy’s global manufacturing and unmanned aerial system technology businesses, the company said.
Adlich has worked for a number of established government contractors over the course of his 21-year career. He was a modeling and simulation manager at the Kinetic Energy Interceptor Program of Northrop Grumman (NYSE: NOC) for six years and then joined Teledyne Brown Engineering, a subsidiary of Teledyne Technologies (NYSE: TDY) as director of defense systems business development.
The aerospace market veteran also served as a business development manager at Lockheed Martin (NYSE: LMT) after its acquisition of Chandler/May, where he was director of command and control programs.
“Steve has a tremendous track record growing and building aerospace and defense businesses. Having his guidance as we develop the Edge portfolio will be a game changer for our company and a real benefit to our growing set of customers,” Edge Autonomy CEO John Purvis remarked.
