WALTHAM, Mass., Feb. 12 (UPI) -- U.S. company Raytheon has picked Michael Hoeffler to run its evaluation team on key military and other programs.

Raytheon said in a statement it had "named Michael M. Hoeffler vice president of the Raytheon Company Evaluation Team -- RCET. Hoeffler replaces Charles 'Ed' Franklin who is retiring from Raytheon after 10 years with the company."

"In his new role, Hoeffler will report directly to Raytheon's Chairman and Chief Executive Officer William H. Swanson. Hoeffler will be responsible for conducting independent evaluations on a wide variety of critical issues and programs, helping the RCET team disseminate best practices and drive process improvements across the company," Raytheon said.

"Mike's proven track record of successfully managing large scale programs and leveraging applications across the enterprise make him the perfect choice to head the Raytheon Company Evaluation Team," said Swanson. "His focus on performance excellence will ensure that best practices are shared across the company for the benefit of our company and our customers."

"On behalf of all the 72,000 employees of Raytheon, I want to thank Ed Franklin for his many years of dedicated service to both our company and our country. We wish him well in his retirement," Swanson said.

"Previously, Hoeffler served as vice president of Future Naval Capability for Raytheon Integrated Defense Systems, where he was responsible for managing the DDG 1000 Zumwalt Class Destroyer program," Raytheon said.

"Since joining Raytheon as an engineer in 1969, he has assumed positions of increasing responsibility, including vice president of Raytheon's worldwide air traffic management business. Under his leadership, Raytheon became the number one provider of air traffic control systems throughout the world. He also served as the lead for IDS strategic planning and as a program manager for a number of military, commercial and international programs," the company said.

"In addition to his professional accomplishments, Hoeffler has served on the Radio Technical Commission for Aeronautics policy board," the company said.
