Lockheed Martin said today it has named Roderick McLean vice president and general manager for the company's air mobility and maritime missions organization and Bridget Lauderdale vice president and general manager for the integrated fighter group organization.

Both appointments are effective April 15.

McLean succeeds George Shultz, who will retire later this year, Lockheed said. Lauderdale succeeds McLean.

In his new role, "McLean will be responsible for the C-130, LM-100J, C-5 and P-3 programs," the company said. "He will also serve as the leader for the Marietta, Georgia, facility, and oversee sub-assembly sites in Clarksburg, West Virginia, and Meridian, Mississippi."

He has worked for Lockheed for 25 years. Before leading the integrated fighter group, he was deputy of that organization and deputy for the F-16 program.

Lauderdale, in her new position, "will be responsible for the development, manufacture and sustainment of the F-16 and F-22 programs," the company said.

She has spent 30 years at the contractor and most recently was vice president for F-35 global sustainment. Lauderdale has also served as senior vice president of corporate strategy and business development and vice president for aeronautics operations.
