Linda P. Hudson, president and CEO of BAE Systems, Inc. since 2009, has announced her plan to retire from the company following a distinguished career in the defense industry.

To ensure a seamless transition, Hudson has agreed to remain in post through the first quarter 2014. At that time, she will also step down from her positions as executive director of the BAE Systems plc Board and as a member of the Company’s Executive Committee. She will remain on the BAE Systems, Inc. Board as an outside director through April 2015.

Hudson, 62, joined BAE Systems, Inc. in 2007 as president of its Land & Armaments operating group. Prior to joining BAE Systems, she was an officer and vice president of the General Dynamics Corporation, and was president of General Dynamics Armament and Technical Products.

“I want to thank Linda for her many contributions to the Company,” said Ian King, chief executive at BAE Systems plc. “She has led the transformation of BAE Systems, Inc. by streamlining the organization, reducing costs, increasing efficiency and speed to market, and diversifying the company’s portfolio of products and services. She has done this while leading a culture change with a focus on delivering strong business performance and efficiency.”
