Current board member retired US Navy Admiral Jonathan (Jon) W. Greenert will assume the role of Chair of the Board of Directors. Jon joined the BAE Systems, Inc. Board in April 2016 and brings a wealth of knowledge and expertise from his distinguished 40-year career as a senior military officer and government leader.
 
His background in management, operations and strategic planning are highly valuable as the company continue to drive innovation and growth at BAE Systems.

Prior to his retirement, Admiral Greenert served a combined six years as the Chief of Naval Operations (CNO) and Vice Chief of Naval Operations, the two most senior military positions in the Navy. As CNO, he served as a member of the Joint Chiefs of Staff. He advised the President and the Secretary of Defense on a range of matters, including US and global maritime security, overall naval operations and budget, and the positioning of Navy bases, ships and aircraft. He also oversaw the development of technologies in such areas as advanced weaponry and uncrewed underwater vehicles.
