Lynas takes BAE Systems group FD role

Peter Lynas promoted to BAE group FD, in place of retiring George Rose

PETER LYNAS will step up to the group finance director role at BAE Systems.

Lynas, currently director – financial control, reporting & treasury, succeeds George Rose who retires from the board on 31 March.

Rose retires after 19 years with the company, 13 of which as group FD.

“He has made a very significant contribution to BAE Systems during those years and is much admired and respected both within the company and externally,” said BAE chairman Dick Olver.

ACCA-qualified Lynas joined GEC-Marconi, one of BAE’s predecessor companies, in 1985. He was then appointed group FD of GEC’s Marconi Electronic Systems business. That business was acquired by British Aerospace in 1999 to form BAE Systems.
