D. Dailey, 57, Senior Vice President, Washington Operations, plans to
retire on April 1, 2009. Gregory R. Dahlberg, 57, currently Lockheed
Martin' s vice president of corporate legislative affairs, will succeed
Dailey effective Jan. 1, 2009. To ensure a smooth transition, Dailey
will remain in a supporting role until his retirement date.
“With great appreciation for Brian’s service and contributions to
Lockheed Martin, I am announcing the retirement of one of our most
senior executives,” said Chairman, President and CEO Bob Stevens. “Brian
has contributed immeasurably to the success of Lockheed Martin and has
earned our deepest respect and admiration. Greg Dahlberg is an
outstanding successor to build on the strong foundation Brian has laid
for the corporation’s Washington Operations,” Stevens added.
Dahlberg joined Lockheed Martin’s Washington Operations staff in March
2003. Previously, he served as minority staff director of the House
Appropriations Committee’s Defense Subcommittee. Prior to that position,
he served as Under Secretary of the Army and was Acting Secretary of the
Army during the early months of the George W. Bush administration. He
began his career as a program analyst for the Transportation Department
and later served on the House Transportation Subcommittee and the full
committee staff of the House Appropriations Committee. He moved to the
Defense Subcommittee in 1995.
Dailey was instrumental in the formative years of Lockheed Martin,
instituting strategic and long-range planning processes that guide the
Corporation today. Since assuming his current position in 1999, he has
served as the Corporation’s principal liaison with government customers
in the Executive and Legislative branches.
Dailey has served the Corporation as Chief Operating Officer of Lockheed
Martin Global Telecommunications; Corporate Vice President, Strategic
Development; and Vice President, Business Development for the former
Space & Strategic Missiles Sector. Dailey joined the Lockheed
Corporation from the White House where he was Executive Secretary of the
National Space Council. Prior to that, he served as senior professional
staff member on the Senate Armed Services Committee. He also held a
professorship at the U.S. Naval Postgraduate School in the Department of
National Security Affairs. Dailey is a graduate of the University of
Southern California where he earned a Ph.D. in International Relations.
“While I recognize that Brian has planned to retire for some time, I’ll
miss his wise counsel and strong support. I know he plans to return to
his passion – the arts – and I wish him much success and happiness in
the years ahead,” said Stevens.
