BAE exec appointment heralds coming restructure


UK-based global defence and security services provider BAE Systems has appointed a new chief of its Applied Intelligence business ahead of a restructure of the business.

Kevin Taylor (pictured) has been appointed Managing Director, Applied Intelligence and has had BAE Group Executive Committee responsibility for the Applied Intelligence business for the last two years. He will remain a member of the committee.

The company has announced that from 1 January next year, Applied Intelligence will be organised into three new divisions - UK Services, International Services and Solutions and Commercial Solutions. The newly formed divisions will continue to be supported by BAE’s global delivery centres in the UK, Malaysia and Poland.

A company statement says that under Taylor’s leadership the Applied Intelligence business will be restructured to target accelerated growth and further develop its technology capabilities for government and commercial customers.

According to the statement, the restructure will see BAE Systems’ Enterprise IT Services join Applied Intelligence to “better align the IT capabilities that have already secured contract wins for BAE Systems, including agreements with the UK Foreign and Commonwealth Office and Highways Agency”.

“This is an exciting time for the business as we see considerable opportunities for growth, within our strong government business and also within the fast-growing commercial sector. I look forward to working with Applied Intelligence’s highly skilled team to take advantage of these opportunities and to grow the business rapidly,” Taylor said.
