The Aerospace Corp. has selected Glenn McKeown as the new senior vice president, general counsel and secretary.
From Aerospace’s D.C. area offices, McKeown will serve as an adviser to Aerospace leadership and its board of trustees, while also leading the Office of the General Counsel as it carries out its functions spanning legal, ethics, licensing and patents, internal audits and corporate quality management.
“Glenn’s extensive experience with national laboratories and research organizations, along with his broad legal background, make him an excellent fit for Aerospace,” said Aerospace President and CEO Steve Isakowitz.
“At a time of great change across the space domain, Glenn will help ensure Aerospace is well-positioned to deliver on our critical mission while upholding our legal and ethical responsibilities to our government partners,” Isakowitz added.
McKeown served as general counsel at Argonne National Laboratory, an Energy Department laboratory operated by The University of Chicago, beginning in 2017. There, he provided legal counsel and management across intellectual property; labor and employment; procurement; and environmental, safety, security and health.
Prior to that, he was associate general counsel at the University of Chicago for 15 years, and supported the school’s role as manager and operator of two national laboratories.
In additional officer news, senior vice president Ed Swallow will take on additional responsibilities at Aerospace, expanding his duties as chief financial officer to also become chief operating officer of the organization. This change takes effect Oct. 1.
