Curtiss-Wright announces CEO succession plan

Curtiss-Wright Corporation has announced a Chief Executive Officer succession plan in which Lynn M. Bamford, currently President of the Defense and Power Segments, will be named President and Chief Executive Officer and a member of the Board of Directors, following David C. Adams’ planned retirement as CEO. To ensure a smooth transition, Mr Adams, 67, will continue as Executive Chairman of the Board through May 2022, at which time Ms. Bamford will assume the dual role of Chairman and Chief Executive Officer. 
Bamford, 57, has more than 30 years of operational experience across the defense, aerospace, and commercial industries. In her current role, she has maintained overall responsibility for the Defense and Power Segments’ strategic goals, technology development, global operations, and financial performance. She was previously Senior Vice President and General Manager of the Defense Solutions division from 2013 through 2019. During her tenure at Curtiss-Wright, she successfully led the Company through nine acquisitions to enhance the global product portfolio.
Bamford joined Curtiss-Wright in 2004 with its acquisition of Dy4, a provider of Commercial-Off-The-Shelf (COTS) embedded computing solutions, where she held several engineering and leadership positions. Shortly after the acquisition, Bamford assumed the position of Vice President, Product Development and Marketing for Curtiss-Wright’s former Controls segment, and ascended to Vice President and General Manager of the Company’s Embedded Computing business, before being named to lead the Defense Solutions division in 2013.
