65 - Michael Strianese
Chairman & CEO, L-3 Communications
Known for his honest and direct assessments of both his own company and government policy, Strianese spent 2013 as the vice chairman of the Aerospace Industries Association’s board of governors. While an early and vocal opponent of Armageddon-like predictions on the impact of the sequester, he has been warning about difficulties maintaining the engineering talent the defense industry needs through the downturn. To help L-3 manage declining defense budgets, he’s put L-3, which he’s run since 2006, at the forefront of what has been a trend toward divestiture for major defense contractors.
