"Joanne and Linda have made significant contributions to Lockheed Martin and
our industry over their exceptional careers," said Marillyn Hewson, chief
executive officer and president. "Both are distinguished leaders whose
vision, expertise and unwavering commitment to performance excellence have
positioned Lockheed Martin for continued success. They leave strong legacies
and we wish them the best in their retirements."

Under Maguire's leadership, the Space Systems business area has delivered
several major national security space systems, notably the Space Based
Infrared System, and expanded our role in space exploration with programs like
Orion and Juno. She was the first woman to receive the prestigious
International von Karman Wings Award, presented by the California Institute of
Technology. And last year, she received the National Defense Industrial
Association's distinguished Peter B. Teets Space Division award.

During Gooden's tenure, IS&GS has remained the top provider of information
technology services to the U.S. government for 18 years and has expanded our
government IT business into international markets. She was named Black
Enterprise magazine's 2009 100 Most Powerful Executives in Corporate America,
and was appointed by President Barack Obama to the National Security
Telecommunications Advisory Committee in 2010.

"Rick is a seasoned executive with more than 33 years of industry experience
in roles of increasing responsibility, and a proven track record of
understanding and delivering on our customers' expectations," said Hewson.

Ambrose joined Lockheed Martin in 2000 and is currently the vice president and
deputy at Space Systems. Prior to his current assignment, he led the
IS&GS-National business and has held various leadership positions in Space
Systems and our former Mission Systems and Sensors business that will prove
valuable as he moves the Space business forward. He has successfully managed
complex organizations and has worked closely with defense, intelligence, civil
and commercial customers throughout his career. Ambrose holds a bachelor's
degree in electrical engineering from DeVry Institute of Technology, a
master's degree in business administration from the University of Denver, and
has attended the Wharton Executive Development Program.

"Sondra is a proven leader, whose distinguished 26-year career at Lockheed
Martin has focused on defining our cyber security infrastructure and deploying
large-scale technology solutions," continued Hewson.

Barbour was appointed to her current position as senior vice president and
chief information officer (CIO) in 2008. Previously she spent more than 20
years in IS&GS, where she served in program management, and as CIO and vice
president of operations. In partnership with Gooden, Barbour helped define
our new cyber security business, which offers integrated, multi-layer
solutions to combat cyber threats for government and commercial customers.
She has also led Lockheed Martin's Corporate Shared Services and Corporate
Internal Audit, where she worked across the enterprise to deploy scalable
technology and operational efficiency solutions. She holds a bachelor's
degree in computer science and accounting from Temple University.

"These new leadership assignments demonstrate the value of our robust
succession and leadership development programs. Rick and Sondra are talented,
well-rounded and experienced business leaders, and I am confident that they
will help us remain focused on delivering for our customers and growing the
business," concluded Hewson.

Headquartered in Bethesda, Md., Lockheed Martin is a global security and
aerospace company that employs about 120,000 people worldwide and is
principally engaged in the research, design, development, manufacture,
integration, and sustainment of advanced technology systems, products, and
