In his new role, Suttle will work to further BAE Systems’ success in
international pursuits. He will be responsible for all core international
business development processes, ensuring proper skills training, creating
integrated country strategies, developing international partners and managing
offset commitments. Additionally, this role will create a more efficient and
responsive marketing activity by eliminating duplicative positions across the
enterprise and creating common processes.

“The creation of the International Business Development role is consistent
with the company’s strategy to emphasize exports as the U.S. defense market
declines,” said Linda P. Hudson, president and CEO of BAE Systems, Inc. “John
has a broad understanding of our markets and customers and will be a
significant asset in shaping and delivering our international strategy.”

Previously, Suttle was the senior vice president of Communications at BAE
Systems, Inc., where he led communications for the company’s U.S.-based
businesses, and prior to that he served as the vice president of
Communications for the company’s Land & Armaments sector. Before joining BAE
Systems, Suttle was senior director of Communications for General Dynamics
Armament and Technical Products.

Suttle is a retired U.S. Army lieutenant colonel, having served in various
public affairs roles and as an Army aviator. He spent more than six years
overseas, including serving in Germany, Bosnia, and Iraq. He is a graduate of
the Army's Training with Industry Fellowship Program and the Command and
General Staff College. His civilian education includes a Bachelor of Science
in mass communications and public relations from Lamar University and a Master
of Arts in journalism and public relations from Marshall University.

Suttle serves as a board member of the Carolinas Historic Aviation Commission
and Assisting Single Parents in Realizing Higher Education. He also serves on
the USO Board of Governors.

Hudson will act as the senior vice president of Communications at BAE Systems,
Inc. until a successor is named.
