Leadership Perspective

Chairman, President and CEO Marillyn A. Hewson leads a strategy session at the enterprise-wide Customer Relations Summit. To improve customer satisfaction, summit participants identified 80 action items. We’ve already begun to implement those solutions as we focus on giving our customer relationships the same priority as our performance and innovation. In 2013, we made major strides in sustainability, and I’m proud that our efforts were recognized by external organizations. We’re aiming even higher in the future. With more than a century of history behind us, we realize that true success comes from creating enduring value for all of our stakeholders.

As a global security and aerospace company we help our customers keep people safe and provide them essential services. Our customers are seeking new ways of thinking about how to address major issues like renewable energy, information security and climate change - and we’re serious about using our capabilities to find solutions to these challenges. Our scientists, technologists and engineers are focused on continually innovating our products, so they are more efficient and affordable than ever, while maintaining the performance our customers expect and need.

With 115,000 employees living and working in hundreds of communities where we conduct business throughout the world, we remain more committed than ever to investing in our people and communities. That commitment starts with making sure our employees have a safe and healthy workplace, and extends into how we do business, solve challenges, use resources and hold ourselves accountable.

Our commitment to sustainability continues to accelerate our business strategy. We respect and support our employees, our communities and our environment because it’s the right thing to do. 

As you read through the website and in the full downloadable report, I hope you’ll agree that the men and women of Lockheed Martin are propelling responsible growth, for today and tomorrow.
