LOCKHEED MARTIN SELECTS NEPTUNE RESIDENT FOR SENIOR FELLOWS PROGRAM
MOORESTOWN, NJ, 28-NOV-05 -- Neptune resident Jimmy Johnson was selected as a Lockheed Martin Senior Fellow, recognizing his leadership in systems engineering and integration. The title of Lockheed Martin Senior Fellow is reserved for one-tenth of one percent of the corporation's technical population.
Johnson is currently the technical director for the Littoral Combat Ship (LCS) program. He brings a wealth of systems engineering and integration expertise to the business, including ship system and mission system concept definition, performance analysis, requirements development and analysis, preliminary and detailed ship architectural design, as well as integration and test. His technical leadership of the LCS program has been recognized by several Lockheed Martin leaders as the business’ best for naval surface combatant business pursuits.
The Fellows Program “is more than just a title,” said Russ Frew, vice president of programs and technology and chair of the Fellows Selection Committee. “It recognizes those few who have become the “go to” subject matter experts in technical areas critical to the corporation’s success, as well as to the mission objectives of our customers. These select few represent the best of our company's past, present and future.”
Johnson holds a bachelor’s degree in computer science from Rutgers University, a master’s degree in systems engineering from the University of Pennsylvania, and an MBA from Monmouth University. He and his wife, Carmelina, have two sons, ages eight and 12.
