87 - Sean O'Keefe
2012 Rank: 64

Chairman & CEO, EADS North America
One of the elder statesmen in the defense industry, O’Keefe marries deep industry knowledge with legislative and governmental experience that give detailed knowledge of the machinations of defense. A former Navy secretary, Pentagon comptroller and NASA administrator, O’Keefe helped engineer the growth of EADS after the company lost its second bid to build the Air Force’s future tankers to Boeing. He helped secure major deals that made EADS North America a leading US space services provider, including to the Pentagon.
