Lockheed CEO-Elect Kubasik Fired Over Improper Relationship With Female Subordinate

Lockheed Martin announced CEO-elect Christopher Kubasik resigned due to a “close personal relationship with a subordinate employee.”

Kubasik was set to become Lockheed’s chief executive in January, replacing incumbent Robert Stevens. But an internal investigation revealed an improper relationship with a female employee, which led to the board asking and receiving Kubasik’s resignation immediately. The investigation was the result of an investigation completed by an outside independent firm, according to a spokesperson for Lockheed, after a third employee brought the issue to the company’s ethics committee. Marillyn Hewson, executive vice president of Electronic Systems, will take his spot.

“While I am deeply disappointed and saddened by Chris’ actions, which have been inconsistent with our values and standards, our swift response to his improper conduct demonstrates our unyielding commitment to holding every employee accountable for their actions,” said Stevens, adding “we have a strong leadership team and a robust succession plan that allowed the board and me to react quickly and appropriately to this situation.
