BAE Appoints Kevin Taylor As Managing Director of Applied Intelligence

BAE Systems announces the appointment of Kevin Taylor as Managing Director, Applied Intelligence, reporting to Chief Executive Ian King.

Formerly Group Strategy Director, Kevin has had Executive Committee responsibility for the Applied Intelligence business for the last two years overseeing strong growth including a 60% increase in order backlog in 2013. Kevin will continue to be a member of the Group’s Executive Committee.

Kevin Taylor, Managing Director, BAE Systems Applied Intelligence, said:

Under Kevin’s leadership the Applied Intelligence business will be restructured to target accelerated growth and further develop its technology capabilities for government and commercial customers. BAE Systems’ Enterprise IT Services based in the UK will join Applied Intelligence to better align the IT capabilities that have already secured contract wins for BAE Systems, including agreements with the UK Foreign and Commonwealth Office and Highways Agency.

From 1 January 2015 Applied Intelligence will be organised into the following three divisions:

  • UK Services
  • International Services and Solutions
  • Commercial Solutions

The newly formed divisions will continue to be supported by global delivery centres in the UK, Malaysia and Poland.
