Marillyn Hewson, chairman, president and CEO of Lockheed Martin, has received the 39th Howard Hughes Memorial Award from the Aero Club of Southern California in recognition of her accomplishments as an aerospace industry executive.

Lockheed said Thursday the Howard Hughes Memorial Award was established in 1978 and is presented annually to an aerospace leader who has “significantly” contributed to aviation or space innovation efforts.

“[Hewson] exemplifies the spirit of this award through her bold leadership and significant contributions to driving innovation in aerospace,” said Aero Club President John Stammreich.

Hewson, a 2018 Wash100 recipient, said in her acceptance speech that the award is a recognition of the entire Lockheed team, adding that past recipients include five former leaders of Lockheed and its legacy companies.

She noted that the company works to provide technologies and services designed to boost global security amid increasingly “complex and unpredictable” security environments.
