Kelsey DeBriyn has been promoted to vice president of investor relations at Raytheon and succeeded Todd Ernst, who became VP of corporate development in October 2017.
Raytheon said Tuesday DeBriyn will lead investor community engagement programs and interact with analysts and institutional investors to inform them about the company’s franchise programs, business objectives, performance, prospects and outlook.
She will report to Toby O’Brien, senior vice president and chief financial officer at Raytheon.
“Kelsey’s international perspective as both a buy and sell side analyst, and the depth of her industry knowledge from following the defense sector for years, will serve the company well as we continue to execute our global growth strategy,” O’Brien said.
DeBriyn joined the company in October as senior director for investor relations after she worked at BlackRock as equity research analyst focused on the aerospace, defense and industrial sectors.
Before that, she served as sell side research analyst and investment banker at Goldman Sachs.
