Steve Morrow Tapped As President And CEO Of Insitu

New Leader Brings Industry And Customer Knowledge To Manufacturer Of Scaneagle, Integrator Aircraft

Steve Morrow (pictured) has been named by Boeing as president and CEO of its Insitu subsidiary, effective immediately. Morrow succeeds CEO Steve Sliwa, who retired April 1.

"Insitu is the industry leader in the design, development and manufacture of high-performance, low-cost unmanned airborne systems and has a bright future, with many opportunities for growth," said Debbie Rub, vice president and general manager of Boeing's Missiles and Unmanned Airborne Systems division, part of the Boeing Military Aircraft business unit. "Under Steve's leadership, with his advanced customer knowledge and experience leading large, diverse teams, Insitu is well positioned to build on its reputation for innovation, agility and global customer responsiveness."

Morrow most recently served as director of Boeing's Stand-off Strike unit, leading long-range weapons programs including the U.S. Navy's Harpoon and SLAM ER missiles, the U.S. Air Force's Air Launched Cruise Missile, the Next Generation Cruise Missile, and Boeing's portion of the Aegis Ballistic Missile Defense program. He previously held other significant leadership posts for Boeing weapons systems programs.

Morrow joined Boeing in 2002 following his retirement as Navy program manager for the $500 million Tactical Tomahawk development program and the Tomahawk Block III recertification and remanufacture program. Earlier he led NAVAIR P-3C Update III aircraft programs and was assigned to the Navy's Acquisition Executive in the Pentagon. He also served as P-3C mission commander and battle group tactical action officer, gaining extensive experience in the intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance mission.

Morrow holds a Bachelor of Science degree in engineering from the University of South Carolina, where he majored in electrical engineering, and a Master of Science degree in aeronautical engineering from the Naval Postgraduate School in Monterey, Calif. He served 26 years with the Navy.

As Insitu president and CEO, Morrow reports to Rub and the Insitu Board of Directors. He is responsible for executing the Insitu business plan and building on the extensive Insitu portfolio, which today includes the ScanEagle and Integrator unmanned aircraft. Morrow leads more than 800 employees, based primarily in the Columbia River Gorge area in Washington and Oregon.


Integrator UAV

Insitu is a pioneer in the unmanned airborne systems market, with products that have both military and commercial applications. With a small footprint and expeditionary focus for land and sea operations, Insitu's family of unmanned airborne systems serves the needs of the global defense community. To date, these systems have accumulated more than 450,000 combat flight hours and 57,000 sorties.
