A leadership restructuring and an office closing are among the changes coming to the stateside-arm of BAE in the near future.
According to Defense News, CEO Linda Hudson sent out a memo detailing a number of reorganization tactics aimed at “better delivering our strategy in an increasingly cost-conscious marketplace.”
The operating headquarters of Electronics, Intelligence and Support divisions (EI&S) will close by July 1. Hudson said more details on that move will be made available shortly.
“Over the past several months, the BAE Systems, Inc. leadership team has conducted a review of our global markets and our customers’ needs,” BAE Systems Inc. President and Chief Executive Linda Hudson said in the memo. “From this review, it is clear that we must make changes to our organization if we are to continue our successful journey going forward. As a result, we are realigning BAE Systems, Inc. to better deliver our strategy in an increasingly cost-conscious marketplace.”
Bob Murphy, Land and Armaments division lead, would take over the new role of executive vice president of “product sectors,” charged with heading the Electronic Solutions, Platform Solutions and Land & Armaments sectors.
“Through these changes, we will be better aligned to our key markets, be more competitive in a challenging environment by reducing cost, and be more agile to effectively respond to customer needs,” Hudson wrote. “Moreover, we will be well positioned to pursue growth opportunities in existing and emerging markets.”
