ACG National Capital is pleased to host Larry Rhue, SVP, Strategic Business Development an Integration at General Dynamics C4 Systems, a business unit of General Dynamics (NYSE: GD), as the speaker for our monthly meeting on Friday, Oct. 15.
Rhue joined General Dynamics in September 1999 when the company acquired GTE Government Systems Corporation where he served as vice president of Strategic Planning and Business Development.
The GTE business unit became a foundational element of the General Dynamics C4 Systems business. Under Rhue’s leadership the company has experienced impressive growth – from $400 million in revenue in 1999 to more than $4 billion today.
This type of growth does not happen by chance. Rhue and his team have excelled at establishing strategic growth goals for organic business development efforts and targeted M&A. He brings a wealth of lessons learned and I am confident this breakfast meeting will have a lot to offer other executives who are interested in growing their companies strategically.
During the ACG National Capital breakfast meeting, Rhue will discuss how General Dynamics C4 Systems developed a vision and executed a strategic plan which has provided extraordinary growth over the past 10 years. In addition to strategy, he will discuss how M&A and a sound approach to business development contributed to the business unit’s success as a market leader in command, control, communications, computers, intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance programs.
