WASHINGTON — Lockheed Martin Corp. has appointed retired U.S. Air Force Lt. Gen. Mike Hamel as president of Lockheed Martin Space Systems’ Commercial Ventures division, which builds telecommunications and remote sensing satellites for non-U.S. government customers.

Hamel, a former commander of Air Force Space and Missile Systems Center, replaces Linda Reiners, who is taking a new position as vice president of Lockheed Martin’s Corporate Ventures operation, the Bethesda, Md.-based company said in a Dec. 12 press release.

Most recently, Hamel was senior vice president of corporate strategy and relations at rocket and satellite maker Orbital Sciences Corp. of Dulles, Va.

“Hamel is responsible for growing and executing commercial satellite communications, remote sensing, and wind energy programs, driving program execution across existing commercial programs and managing related launch campaigns,” Lockheed Martin said in the press release.
