Spirit AeroSystems has appointed a former Lockheed Martin executive to its board of directors effective Nov. 25, the company said Tuesday.
Christopher Kubasik, 52, served in various senior leadership roles at Lockheed Martin, including holding positions of president and chief operating officer from 2010 to 2012.
Spirit AeroSystems president Larry Lawson also came from Lockheed Martin, where he held executive leadership positions.
Kubasik also served in key leadership roles at Electronic Systems and at Ernst & Young.
Since January, Kubasik has “provided strategic guidance, operational expertise and financial insights including the assessment of merger and acquisition opportunities through Ackuity Advisors,” Spirit said.
“Chris brings a wealth of financial expertise and industry leadership background, and we are very pleased to welcome him to the board,” Bob Johnson, chairman of Spirit’s board of directors, said in a statement. “We are excited to have Chris join the full board, as well as serve on the audit and government and security committees.”
Kubasik holds a bachelor’s degree in accounting from the University of Maryland and attended the executive program at Northwestern University’s Kellogg School of Business. He also studied Systems Acquisition Management at Defense Acquisition University, Fort Belvoir, and earned an executive engineering certificate at Carnegie Mellon University.
