Mercury Systems today announced a reorganization of the company's corporate structure.

Mercury will go from having two divisions to one unified structure that incorporates multiple business units and supporting functions, according to a company statement.

With this change, Roger Wells has been appointed as the company's chief operating officer, effective Jan. 22. He will report to Mercury Chairman and CEO Bill Ballhaus.

Wells was previously in charge of the company's microelectronics division.

“Consolidating into a single, simplified organization is an important step toward converting our strong pipeline and bookings to deliver results for all stakeholders, and we expect to further optimize our structure in the year ahead,” Ballhaus said in the statement. “This integrated approach will clarify accountability, eliminate redundancy and leverage our unique, end-to-end Mercury Processing Platform for growth.”

The simplification of Mercury’s structure also means that Chief Growth Officer Christine Harbison and Executive Vice President of Execution Excellence Allen Couture are leaving the company.

"They will stay on for a short period to help ensure a seamless transition to the new organizational structure," the statement reads.
