Gulfstream Aerospace named Thomas Anderson to lead its operations in Long Beach, Calif. Anderson, who was promoted into the role of v-p and general manager at Gulfstream Long Beach, will steer all aspects of the site. Gulfstream Long Beach employs nearly 800 workers, who provide completions for the G650/650ER and G550, as well as maintenance services on all Gulfstreams.
Anderson most recently was director of product support at the facility. During his 14-year tenure with Gulfstream, he has held positions both at Gulfstream facilities in Savannah, Ga., as well as Long Beach. These include director of final phase operations for the G550/G450, senior manager of final phase operations, manager of the premium furniture woodshop and manager of final phase.
In his new position, Anderson succeeds Beck Johnson, who retired. He reports to Dennis Stuligross, Gulfstream senior v-p of operations, and Derek Zimmerman, president of Gulfstream product support.
