Bill Watson, former CEO of RADA Technologies with three decades of defense industry experience, has joined antenna and radio frequency system developer Antenna Research Associates as chief growth officer.
He will be responsible for identifying and pursuing new market opportunities and developing new ideas to expand ARA’s existing market presence, the Laurel, Maryland-headquartered company said Wednesday.
Before joining RADA Technologies, Watson held vice president roles at L3 Technologies, Safran and Ferro Financial Group.
He spent 13 years at DRS Technologies and served in roles of increasing responsibilities including VP of radar and communication systems and naval C4 systems.
“Bill’s extensive experience leading and growing companies will be a great asset to ARA as we strive to expand our footprint across the C5ISR domain,” said Logen Thiran, president and CEO of ARA.
