LGen Bouchard (Ret’d) was the first to hold the role of Chief Executive of Lockheed Martin Canada and has been instrumental in expanding Lockheed Martin’s business growth in Canada during his tenure.

“I have thoroughly enjoyed serving Lockheed Martin Canada and Lockheed Martin Corporation and while the time has come for me to retire, I will remain an ardent supporter and advocate of the work Lockheed Martin does to deliver the best equipment to today’s modern warfighter, the F-35 being a primary example,” said Bouchard.
