Aerojet Rocketdyne welcomes senior vice president

Aerojet Rocketdyne announced July 8 that Paul Meyer will join the company as senior vice president, Advanced Programs & Business Development.

This newly-created organization encompasses Advanced Programs, Advanced Technology and Business Development for all of Aerojet Rocketdyne.

In his role, Meyer will serve as a key partner to the president, responsible for leading the continued growth, diversification and transformation of the Aerojet Rocketdyne enterprise, which currently encompasses more than 5,300 employees at 16 sites across the United States and throughout the world.
Meyer will provide a renewed focus on Strategy, Business Development and Washington Operations, and on nurturing key customer and supplier relationships. Meyer and his team will be responsible for filling a robust pipeline for all business units through focused pursuits and captures in Space and Defense Advanced Programs to achieve Aerojet Rocketdyne’s goals for growth. In his role as senior vice president, Meyer also will fulfill certain delegated responsibilities as a deputy to the president.

“Paul brings an unparalleled level of expertise in capturing new business through the development of new products and capabilities that meet the evolving needs of customers,” said Warren M. Boley, Jr., Aerojet Rocketdyne president. “He will be a tremendous asset to our executive leadership team and I’m thrilled to have him on board. Paul’s strategic mindset and demonstrated track record in leveraging advanced development programs fit in nicely with the vision we have outlined for Aerojet Rocketdyne.”

Meyer has been extensively involved in the aerospace industry since 1988. Meyer retired after 13 years at Northrop Grumman, most recently as sector vice president and general manager of the Aerospace Systems Advanced Programs and Technology Division. During his leadership, the company achieved the launch, first flight, and capture of more than 15 new air and space advanced designs, including two key commercial space ventures – one for Sir Richard Branson’s Virgin Galactic, and the other for Paul Allen’s Stratolaunch under Scaled Composites, a Burt Rutan-founded company, integrated within his division. Prior to joining Northrop Grumman, Meyer also served in a variety of program management and business development roles at Lockheed Martin’s Skunk Works.

Meyer holds a Bachelor of Science in Business Administration from the University of Missouri, Columbia. He also is a graduate of the University of Southern California’s Executive Management Development Program as well as a graduate of Stanford University’s Senior Executive Development Program.

Commissioned in the United States Air Force through the University, Meyer graduated from the Air Force’s Electronic Warfare Officer School, Fighter Weapons Instructor Course and Nuclear Weapons Instructor Course. Meyer completed 23 years of service in 2000, serving in a variety of leadership roles during both active duty and the Air National Guard.
