New Lockheed CEO has been preparing for 29 years

The Washington Post published a good profile on Marillyn Hewson, the new chief executive in waiting at Lockheed Martin Corp.

Hewson, who has spent time in Fort Worth with Lockheed's Aeronautics division, said she had no idea that the CEO heir apparent, Christopher Kubasik, was in trouble over an inappropriate personal relationship with another Lockheed employee. But she's ready to take over.

“I found out when I was invited into the boardroom,” said Hewson. “My reaction was immediately, ‘I’m ready.’ ”

Post reporter Marjorie Censer had another story about how, come January, three of the nation's leading defense contractors will be run by female CEOs. It's not a good old boys club anymore.
