Cablex gears for growth with new adviser
Cablex's managing director with Raydon Gates

Defence electrical systems and C4I provider Cablex has revealed former Lockheed Martin ANZ chief executive Rear Admiral (Ret’d) Raydon Gates has joined the business as a special adviser.

With 37 years’ service in the Royal Australian Navy, matched with extensive defence industry expertise, Mr Gates will support the Melbourne-based company as it enters a phase of evolution, including a number of soon-to-be-revealed major announcements.

Michael Zimmer, managing director of Cablex, said Gates’ extensive experience in the defence industry and national security sector will bring a valuable body of knowledge to Cablex.

Gates has joined a number of defence firms this year in a varying capacity since his departure from Lockheed Martin ANZ.

Last month, Elbit Systems of Australia announced the appointment of Gates as non-executive director on their board.

In February, he was also appointed as non-executive director on the QinetiQ Australia board.

Gates joined the Defence Connect Podcast recently to share his insights on an industry in transition, how to win more defence work and better connect with government. Click here to listen.
