Gulfstream Aerospace marketing and sales director Larry Flynn has been promoted to president of the business jet maker, effective 1 September.
Flynn, who had run the product support division of the Savannah, Georgia-based General Dynamics subsidiary from 2001 through 2008, will report to now-president, Joe Lombardo, in Lombardo's continuing role as executive vice-president of General Dynamics aerospace group. Lombardo became a General Dynamics VP in 2001 and Gulfstream Aerospace president in 2007.
"Larry Flynn has a broad base of operational and customer-focused experience that will serve him well as he leads Gulfstream into the future," says Lombardo of the promotion. "His direction of Gulfstream's marketing and sales organization has given Larry exceptional insight into the needs of our increasingly international customer base. I'm confident that he will capitalize on that knowledge to enhance the company's positioning as a global leader in business aviation."
