Norman R. Augustine is a national leader in management, science, and technology; a celebrated author and speaker; and a dynamic force in the aerospace industry. As the CEO of Martin Marietta, he orchestrated its merger with the Lockheed Corporation in 1995 creating Lockheed Martin, the largest defense contractor in the United States. He led the 1990 Advisory Committee on the Future of the U.S. Space Program, and was a member of the President’s Council of Advisors on Science and Technology for 16 years.
A graduate of Princeton University, Augustine joined the Douglas Aircraft Company as an engineer and quickly moved into advanced management positions in the defense industry. A former Under Secretary of the Army, Augustine is the five-time recipient of the Defense Department’s Distinguished Service Medal. His other awards are numerous, including the National Medal of Technology and the National Air and Space Museum Trophy for Lifetime Achievement.
Augustine has authored several books, most notably The Defense Revolution and Augustine’s Laws, a tongue-in-cheek but resonating collection of business management rules.
Augustine is an avid outdoors enthusiast who has trekked extensively around the world, including both poles of the Earth.
Join Norman Augustine for a candid look at aviation, business, and the defense industry.
