ROLLS-ROYCE APPOINTS ROB WATSON TO EXECUTIVE TEAM

AS PRESIDENT - ELECTRICAL

 

 

Rolls-Royce (LSE:RR.,ADR:RYCEY) announces that Rob Watson has joined the Executive Team as President - Electrical with effect from 1 January 2022. Rob has led Rolls-Royce Electrical since October 2017, having previously held a number of senior corporate and business roles across the group during his ten year career with us. This follows our announcement, at our half year results, that from the beginning of this year we will report Rolls-Royce Electrical as a separate line item in our financial statements, alongside our three established business units and Rolls-Royce SMR.

 

Rolls-Royce Electrical offers aviation customers a complete electric propulsion system for their platform, whether that is an electric vertical takeoff and landing (eVTOL) or commuter aircraft. In 2021, Rolls-Royce Electrical announced partnerships with Vertical Aerospace, Eve and Tecnam and also staked the claim for the world's fastest all-electric aircraft with the Spirit of Innovation.

 

  Warren East, CEO, Rolls-Royce, said: "Rob has played a fundamental role in building our Rolls-Royce Electrical business, which is leading us into exciting new advanced air mobility markets as we look to create significant commercial opportunities from the transition to net zero. I would like to welcome him to the Executive Team . "
