Lockheed Martin Aeronautics Co. has named Roderick "Rod" McLean vice president and general manager of the F-16/F-22 Integrated Fighter Group.


Meanwhile, Michael Cawood has been selected to serve as vice president and deputy for the group, with both appointments effective immediately.
"Rod's most recent special assignment as vice president and program manager for the next-generation trainer program, combined with his past experience as vice president and deputy for IFG, perfectly prepares him to lead the IFG team into the future," said Orlando Carvalho, executive vice president of Lockheed Martin Aeronautics, the Fort Worth-based aeronautics segment of Lockheed Martin Corp., commenting in a news release.
In his almost 20 years with the company, McLean has served as F-16 deputy vice president and F-16 program director for various countries in the Middle East, North Africa, and Southeast Asia. He began his Lockheed Martin career as a Radar Systems engineer in Moorestown, N.J. and has held several leadership roles since that time.
McLean holds an electrical engineering degree from North Carolina A&T State University, a master's degree in engineering from Georgia Institute of Technology and a master of business administration from the University of Maryland's Robert H. Smith School of Business.
Meanwhile, Cawood most recently served as vice president of F-16/F-22 IFG Product Development, providing overall leadership to an industry team of partners focused on enhancing the Viper and Raptor fighter aircrafts’ future capabilities. He holds a bachelor's degree in biomedical engineering from the University of California and a master's degree in biomedical engineering from the University of Texas.
Lockheed Martin Corp., based in Bethesda, Md., is a global security and aerospace company employing about 120,000 people worldwide. It designs, develops, builds and builds advanced technology systems, products and services. More information is available at www.lockheedmartin.com.
