The Aerospace Corp. announced new additions to its board of directors: Stephanie L. O’Sullivan was elected board chair and retired U.S. Air Force Gen. Paul J. Selva will serve as vice chair, replacing O’Sullivan in this role.
Jim Bridenstine, former NASA administrator, also joined the board, along with David Norquist, former defense deputy secretary, who begins his term Sept. 8.
“Stephanie and Paul bring extensive knowledge of our customers’ needs to the board, and they provide insight into how Aerospace can deliver solutions to those needs that work across the space enterprise,” said Aerospace President and CEO Steve Isakowitz. “I’m thrilled for them to take on these new roles, and I look forward to their continued stewardship at Aerospace.”
O’Sullivan was elected to the board in June 2017 and named vice chair in December 2019. She has served the intelligence community throughout her career, most recently as principal deputy director of national intelligence in the Office of the Director of National Intelligence. She also served as the associate deputy director of the CIA.
Selva joined Aerospace’s board in December 2019 after retiring as the 10th vice chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, where he had been the nation’s second-highest-ranking military officer. Prior to this assignment, he served as commander of U.S. Transportation Command.
