Maria Demaree

Industry Leadership

Maria Demaree is the vice president and general manager of the national security space for Lockheed Martin, a promotion she earned late last year. In this role, Demaree is responsible for the “performance of a multi-billion dollar portfolio and leading a workforce of 8,300 full-time employees focused on the delivery of integrated end-to-end solutions, high-performance systems, critical space architectures and innovative concepts to help our customers successfully execute vital national security missions.” As part of that, Lockheed last year launched a new technology test environment using artificial intelligence, cloud computing and automation to manage multiple satellite operations in space. But this new role is just the tip of the iceberg of a more than 30-year career with Lockheed in which Demaree has climbed the ranks from an aerospace engineer to lead one of the main business lines for the defense contracting giant.
