BAE Systems names new government relations exec
BAE Systems has named Frank Ruggiero senior vice president of government relations.
Ruggiero joined BAE Systems in 2012 as vice president for international government relations. Before that, he worked for 20 years in the U.S. Government, most recently as senior deputy special representative and deputy assistance secretary of state for Afghanistan and Pakistan under former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. Before that, he was the senior U.S. official in Southern Afghanistan during President Obama’s surge in military forces there.
Ruggiero follows Erin Moseley, who became president of BAE Systems’ Support Solutions in February.
Ruggiero will oversee BAE Systems’ relationships with members of Congress, the Department of Defense and other Cabinet-level organizations and state government leaders.
