The chief executive officer of Rolls-Royce North America is retiring. The company, which has a major presence in Indianapolis, says Marion Blakey will step down at the end of June after nearly three years as CEO.
Before joining Rolls-Royce, Blakey spent nearly eight years as president and CEO of the Aerospace Industries Association. She is also a former administrator of the Federal Aviation Administration.
"On behalf of the Rolls-Royce executive leadership team and Board, I would like to take this opportunity to thank Marion for her commitment and dedication to Rolls-Royce over the past three years," said Warren East, CEO of parent Rolls-Royce plc. "Marion has provided strong leadership within North America as well as globally. She should be proud of the impact she has made in her tenure with Rolls-Royce."
Rolls-Royce says it will announce its succession plans for Blakey’s position in the near future.
