SBJ Staff Report

Aug 5, 2011 - General Dynamics (NYSE: GD) announced today that it was adding a key executive position, naming Larry R. Flynn, 59, as president of Gulfstream Aerospace Corporation as of Sept. 1. Gulfstream is headquartered in Savannah, and employs more than 10,000 people at 10 major locations. The company is a wholly owned subsidiary of General Dynamics.

In announcing Flynn's appointment Lombardo said, "Larry Flynn has a broad base of operational and customer-focused experience that will serve him well as he leads Gulfstream into the future. His direction of Gulfstream's marketing and sales organization has given Larry exceptional insight into the needs of our increasingly international customer base. I'm confident that he will capitalize on that knowledge to enhance the company's positioning as a global leader in business aviation."

Flynn joined Gulfstream in May 1995 as vice president of aircraft services, bringing with him more than 25 years of experience in managing aircraft service facilities. Before joining Gulfstream, he was vice president, Location Based Services, for Stevens Aviation, where he was responsible for managing maintenance facilities and overseeing service on various models of corporate jets. Earlier, Flynn served as a regional vice president for Signature Flight Support and as executive vice president and general manager for AMR Combs.

Flynn earned a bachelor's degree in business administration and a master's degree in manpower management from the University of Kansas.
