“Barbara brings to this critical role two decades of leadership in our defense, intelligence and space businesses, combined with a career’s worth of expertise in engineering and program management,” said Hayes.
“With a deep understanding of our portfolio's core capabilities, Barbara is well positioned to further the strategic optimization and development of our business,” he added.
