Ulrich Finkenbusch Returns to Germany to Head Lockheed Martins Berlin Office

 Ulrich (Uli) Finkenbusch has returned to Germany to head Lockheed Martins Berlin office following 16 months working in the companys international business development team in the US.

Prior to joining Lockheed Martin in May 2014, he was Principal Foreign Policy Advisor to the Free Democratic Party in the Bundestag. In this role he dealt with all foreign and national security issues relevant to Germany and the European Union.

Lockheed Martin has been a trusted partner with Germany for more than half a century. In my new role I am looking forward to strengthening this partnership and expanding our links with companies like MBDA Deutschland, Airbus, and Diehl to help Germany meet its evolving mission needs, said Uli. Our next-generation air and missile defence system MEADS, in which we are partnered with MBDA Deutschland, will enable Germany to fulfil its role as a NATO framework nation on air and missile defence. It is our signature programme in Germany and we are committed to working with MBDA to make it an unmitigated success.

Lockheed Martins office in the heart of Berlin will also encompass the business activities of Sikorsky, now a Lockheed Martin company, adding further depth to its partnership with German industry.

German built CH-53 Sea Stallions, assembled in Speyer and maintained in Donauwrth have been flown by the German Army Aviation Corps since 1971 and have an established track record on a wide range of international missions for NATO and the United Nations.

If selected by Germany, the new generation CH-53K King Stallion, one of the most advanced heavy lift helicopters ever designed, would see significant involvement by German industry, in particular regarding the initial outfitting and in-service support throughout the aircrafts life-cycle. MTU is already providing parts of the engines for CH-53K helicopters being built for the US Marine Corps.
