Lockheed Martin Names Lauderdale VP/GM of F-35 Program

Bridget Lauderdale, currently vice president and general manager for Lockheed Martin Aeronautics’ Integrated Fighter Group including the F-16 and F-22, was recently named vice president and general manager of Lockheed Martin’s F-35 Lightning II Program. Lauderdale succeeds Greg Ulmer, who was promoted to Lockheed Martin Aeronautics executive vice president earlier this year. Doug Wilhelm, currently acting vice president and deputy general manager of the F-35 Program, will assume this position permanently.

In Lauderdale’s new role, she will be responsible for partnering with domestic and international customers to ensure the F-35 program delivers the most affordable fifth generation aircraft in production, advances capability through a stable modernization program, and increases availability while reducing overall operational and sustainment costs.

A successor for Lauderdale’s IFG role will be named later. OJ Sanchez, vice president of the F-22 program, will serve as the acting IFG vice president and general manager in the interim.

Additionally, Bill Brotherton, who has been serving as the acting F-35 vice president and general manager, has been named to a new role as vice president of Aeronautics Enterprise Performance.

These changes will be effective April 12.
