WASHINGTON — Lockheed Martin-owned Sikorsky’s President Dan Schultz is set to retire at the beginning of 2021 and Paul Lemmo, the company’s current vice president of integrated warfare systems and sensors, will take over the role, according to a Nov. 18 Lockheed statement.

The bench will shift within Lockheed with Jon Rambeau, the current vice president of C6ISR, taking over for Lemmo. Gregg Bauer, vice president for undersea warfare, will assume Rambeau’s role.

“Just recently the president of our Sikorsky business, Dan Schultz, announced his decision to retire at the beginning of 2021,” Stephanie Hill, executive vice president of Lockheed Martin Rotary and Mission Systems, said in the statement. “Dan has had a tremendous impact to Lockheed Martin and I’m grateful for his contributions.”

Schultz joined Lockheed in 2006. Before assuming his current role at Sikorsky, he was the vice president and general manager of ship and aviation systems. Schultz served in the U.S. Marine Corps and was the program manager for the Joint V-22 Osprey tiltrotor program, according to his company biography.

Lemmo “built a broad career” that spans more than 30 years at Lockheed Martin, Hill said.

“I’m proud of Lockheed Martin’s focus on talent development which allows for smooth and seamless transitions and ensures we continue to support our customers’ missions without disruption,” Hill said.

Sikorsky is in the midst of two major helicopter competitions with the U.S. Army — the Future Long Range Assault Aircraft (FLRAA) and the Future Attack Reconnaissance Aircraft (FARA). Sikorsky has partnered with Boeing in the FLRAA competition and in both efforts the company is competing head-to-head with Bell.
