Linda Mills helps lead Northrop’s structural change

Linda Mills of NorthropNorthrop Grumman recently announced it would streamline its sector units from seven to five in order to improve the company’s program performance and enhance its cost competitiveness. The five new sectors will be aerospace systems, electronic systems, information systems, shipbuilding and technical services — and Linda Mills will be a key part of that change. Mills, who currently oversees the company’s $4.5 billion information technology unit in McLean, Va., will lead the Information Technology and Mission Systems sectors combined to form the new Information Systems sector — a $10 billion provider of advanced technologies to defense, intelligence, civil agency and commercial customers.

“Linda Mills’ proven track record, broad customer experience in the areas served by the sector and deep understanding of the systems integration and IT capabilities of the business make her ideally suited to serve as president of the Information Systems sector,” says Ronald D. Sugar, Northrop Grumman chairman and chief executive officer.

Other industry veterans agree.
