“I have a passion for BAE Systems and its mission to deliver a growing capability to the Australian Defence Force. The importance of the role the company plays in helping protect the nation and grow the economy cannot be underestimated,” he added. 

Dr Watt was appointed to the position in April 2016 and has made a very significant contribution to the company’s success during the term of his appointment. 

“I am grateful of the opportunity to work with the company and I would like to thank all of the employees within Australia for their dedication and hard work. The company has a great opportunity to grow the Australian business and, in doing so, ensure that the Australian Defence Force maintains the capability edge it needs,” Dr Watt said.

I would like to personally thank Ian for his leadership and contribution to the company,” Costigan added.
