Posted 4 May 2012 · 2 Comments

ADS has announced that Howard Wheeldon FRAeS joined ADS as Managing Director Policy, Public Affairs & Media on 1 May 2012, replacing Derek Marshall who recently retired from this position.

Howard Wheeldon (above) has been a specialist analyst of aerospace and defence for the past 28 years and is a well known speaker and commentator on global macro-economic and geo-political affairs. Prior to joining ADS, Howard was Senior Strategist of BGC Partners. His views are regularly sought by international and domestic press and media and, to that end, he is a regular contributor on a wide range of business, economic and political-related subject matter, including defence to various international media organisations and across all parts of BBC radio and television.    

A long-time supporter of NATO, Howard’s work within the international defence and aerospace arena is biased toward political and industrial aspects, including particularly equipment procurement and operation predominantly related to air power and surface ships and in support of the military as a whole. Well connected within government at a senior level and with armed forces chiefs, Howard provides considerable support to both the military and the UK defence industrial base. A long-time supporter of all things engineering and manufacturing and regular speaker, he is also well known for championing the cause of small and medium-sized enterprises to government.

Rees Ward, CEO at ADS, said: “I am delighted that Howard has joined the ADS team as Managing Director for Policy and Public Affairs. He has long been a respected commentator on matters pertaining to ADS’ sectors, both within industry, the UK and overseas. I, along with my ADS colleagues, look forward to working with him to the benefit of the UK’s world leading manufacturing sectors of Aerospace, Defence, Security and Space.”

I do try to be respectful of those with different opinions from mine, but Mr Wheeldon's ' justification ' of UK arms export policy on Radio 5 this morning Sep 13 was disingenuous and pathetic, and flew in the face of generally accepted facts. Altogether disgraceful, though to be expected from someone in the pay of the weapons makers

An inspired choice. I have had the good fortune to work with Howard on a number of occasions. His knowledge of the industry is immense. He will be a great asset to the ADS organisation.
