Patrick Wood, an executive at the UK arm of the American global security and aerospace company Lockheed Martin, has resigned to take up a job at another defence firm.
Wood left his role as director of international advanced programmes and space executive at Lockheed Martin UK on 1 January. He is set to join the executive team of the aircraft maintenance, modification and design firm Marshall Aerospace and Defence Group on 7 January, according to the company’s chief executive Alistair McPhee. At the ADG, Wood will contribute to the development of a dedicated innovation function, McPhee said in a statement.
A spokesman for Lockheed Martin said the company was moving swiftly to restructure its international space business and would announce important appointments in due course.
