Saab announced today it has hired retired Navy Capt. Michael Brasseur as the company's new vice president and chief strategy officer.
Brasseur was the first commodore of the Navy's Task Force 59, a Middle East-based organization designed to integrate unmanned systems and artificial intelligence.
In the newly created chief strategy officer role, Brasseur will help Saab leverage emerging disruptive technologies, according to a company statement.
Brasseur is recently retired after 26 years of service in the Navy.
