General Dynamics promotes Heebner to head IT unit

Falls Church-based defense contractor General Dynamics announced a leadership shake-up Thursday, promoting the chief of its combat systems unit to take over the company’s faltering information systems business.

The move follows the departure of Gerard J. DeMuro, the long-time head of the information systems unit, last month. The company said David K. Heebner, a retired three-star general who has been with the company since 2000, will take over the business.

Phebe Novakovic, the company’s chief executive, took over in January and has been sharply critical of the company’s recent performance as well as its acquisitions. Earlier this year, the company reported it was devaluing the IT unit by $2 billion.

As part of the leadership shake-up, Mark C. Roualet, who heads General Dynamics Land Systems, will take over the combat systems unit. Gary L. Whited, who handles the land systems unit’s domestic operations, will become president of the land systems business.

Roualet, who joined General Dynamics in 1982, has led the land systems business since 2008. Whited previously served as chief financial officer of the land systems business.
