Former DBED official joins Northrop Grumman
After four years as a state official promoting Maryland technology companies overseas and around the nation, Christopher C. Foster now plies his promotional abilities for one of the state's leading tech companies.
Northrop Grumman has hired the former deputy secretary of the Maryland Department of Business and Economic Development to do pretty much what he did for the state: build strategic partnerships.
"Lockheed Martin, Northrop Grumman, BAE Systems ... we have all these high-tech companies that sell defense electronics, aviation electronics, communications, nanotechnologies, biotechnologies, life sciences ... We need to be exporting that technology."
