Marion Blakey's New Gig

Marion Blakey's New Gig

The aerospace industry’s loudest advocate the last eight years is moving on. Aerospace Industries Association president Marion Blakey was named president of Rolls-Royce North America and chair of its board. The Reston-based company said Marion, who also served as FAA administrator for five years and NTSB chair, brings deep industry perspective that will be valuable for its Aerospace and Land & Sea divisions. The company’s revenue hit $23.4B in 2014 and has over 54,000 employees in over 50 countries. All sounds great, but more importantly, what color car will she get?
