Northrop Grumman Corp. named Robert Iorizzo
as president of the Electronic Sensors and Systems Sector group, the company's largest business. Iorizzo replaces James Roche, who was confirmed by the U.S. Senate as secretary of the U.S. Air Force. The change was made effective immediately, Northrop said.
Iorizzo previously served as vice president and general manager of the sector's Command, Control, Communications, Intelligence and Naval Systems division. The sensors and systems business has expanded recently with Northrop's acquisition of Litton Industries Inc.
Litton's $1.6 billion advanced electronics businesses was integrated into Northrop's operation and the division is now expected to generate 2001 revenues of $4.5 billion.
