Lockheed Martin Chairman, President and CEO Marillyn Hewson officially opened the company’s newest office in Israel April 9 to support the corporation’s growing presence in that important country.
The new office, located in Be’er Sheva, further demonstrates the Corporation’s commitment to supporting the Israeli Defense Force and their “Move to the South” campaign.
“The opening of our Lockheed Martin office here in Be’er Sheva is a demonstration of our commitment to supporting the Israeli Defense Force’s “Move to the South” strategy,” said Hewson. “Establishing this office is also an important step in the establishment of Lockheed Martin in Israel.”
Former Israeli Air Force Brig. Gen. Shelly Gotman was recently appointed as managing director of Israel for the company’s Information Systems & Global Solutions business and will lead the office. Lockheed Martin’s IS&GS business has been the number one provider of information technology solutions and services to the U.S. government for the past 19 years. It has been growing its international presence with major operations in the United Kingdom, Europe, and Australia. Current IS&GS customers include NATO; British air traffic management organization NATS; the Australian Tax office; and the United Kingdom Ministry of Justice.
