USE THIS ONEBAE Systems Australia has appointed Greg Laxton as director for maritime sustainment. Laxton has had a varied 32-year naval career, leading organisations through customer focused transformations that had a significant impact on improving program delivery. In his new position he will lead a team of more than 900, responsible for sustainment on many of the Royal Australia Navy front-line complex surface ship assets.

Prior to joining BAE Systems, Laxton was executive director of the Fleet Support Unit (FSU), where he led the transformation of the organisation, increasing utilisation significantly in 18 months. Before this, he worked as director of the Guided Missile Frigate (FFG) Enterprise, leading a transformation, in collaboration with industry partners, which resulted in FFG being recognised as world’s best practice in relational contracting.

Andrew Gresham, managing director of Defence Delivery, said, “Greg’s background makes him ideally placed to lead our Maritime Sustainment business and continue to support the Royal Australian Navy through a changing maritime sustainment landscape. I look forward to working with him to ensure BAE Systems remains focused on delivering program excellence in asset management, optimising performance for our customer.”
