Timothy Cahill has been tapped as Lockheed Martin International’s new senior vice president and corporate officer.
Cahill succeeds Richard Edwards, who will become strategic adviser to the CEO. The appointments will be effective Oct. 14.
“Tim brings extensive international experience to his new position, having worked with customers in Europe, Asia and the Middle East,” said Chair, President and CEO Marillyn Hewson. “He has successfully managed several of our international product lines and developed a deep understanding of how to grow our business around the world.”
Cahill was previously vice president of Integrated Air and Missile Defense Systems at MFC, which includes the Terminal High Altitude Area Defense System and the Patriot PAC-3 Missile products. He joined Lockheed Martin in 1995 as an engineer in Space Systems’ Special Programs and has since held several critical roles, including vice president and general manager of Strategic and Missile Defense Systems and vice president of Engineering and Technology at Lockheed Martin Space.
Edwards has led Lockheed Martin International since January 2018 and has helped growing the international business by strengthening customer relationships and industry partnerships. He previously served as executive vice president of Missiles and Fire Control. In his new role, Edwards will focus on several key enterprisewide initiatives.
“I want to thank Rick for his strong dedication to Lockheed Martin and to our customers, and I appreciate that we will continue to benefit from Rick’s expertise and experience,” Hewson said. “I look forward to working with him directly to improve our business and drive sustained growth.”
