Northrop Grumman has appointed retired US. Army Lt. Gen. Larry J. Dodgen, former commander of U.S. Army Space and Missile Defense Command/U.S. Army Forces Strategic Command, has joined the company as vice president of strategy for the company's missile systems business.

Dodgen reports directly to Jerry B. Agee, corporate vice president and president of Northrop Grumman's Mission Systems sector. He is responsible for expanding the company's offensive and defensive missile systems business. Dodgen will work in close collaboration with the company's missile systems business units and the planning and development organization. He is based in Huntsville, Ala.

"We are proud that Lieutenant General Dodgen has chosen to join the Northrop Grumman team. His unparalleled expertise and natural leadership abilities, along with his intimate knowledge, understanding and respect for the military, will serve Northrop Grumman -- and our military customers -- very well," Agee said. "We believe this is a win-win for us and for our customers."

Dodgen served more than 34 years in the Army. During Operation Desert Storm, he led the 8th Battalion, 43rd Air Defense Artillery into combat. He also served as the deputy assistant secretary of defense for policy and missions, director of the Joint Air and Missile Defense Organization, and commander of the U.S. Army Aviation and Missile Command.

"Northrop Grumman has a long, proud history of partnering with the military and providing innovative, top-quality, missile systems products and services," Dodgen said. "I want to continue serving the military and contributing in whatever way I can to the country's defense and security, and Northrop Grumman offers that opportunity."

Born in New Orleans, Dodgen earned a bachelor's degree in chemical engineering from Louisiana State University in 1972. He also earned a master's degree in business administration from the University of Missouri and a master's degree in national security and strategy from the United States Naval War College. Dodgen has been awarded the Defense Distinguished Service Medal with Oak Leaf Cluster, Legion of Merit (two Oak Leaf Clusters), Meritorious Service Medal (four Oak Leaf Clusters), Army Commendation Medal, and the Army Achievement Medal.
