L3 appoints Richard Foster as corporate vice president of Canada operations

L3 Technologies of New York, NY announced on February 1 that it has appointed Richard Foster as corporate vice president of Canada operations. Based in Ottawa, Foster will be responsible for overseeing all of L3’s Canadian business and coordinating with the business development team to broaden L3 Canada’s customer base. Foster will report to David Van Buren, L3’s senior vice president of program development.

“Canada is a core international market for L3, and we are focused on pursuing new opportunities in that area,” said Michael Strianese, L3’s chairman and chief executive officer. “We look forward to Rich’s contributions toward expanding L3 Canada’s scope of business. His extensive military experience and work with foreign governments are particularly well-suited to delivering L3’s broad portfolio of readiness, upgrade, sensor and modernization technologies and services to allied countries across the globe.”

Foster joins L3 Canada following a distinguished 35-year career in the Canadian Armed Forces, where he achieved the rank of major-general. His more recent duties as deputy commander of the Royal Canadian Air Force and as deputy commander of the Canadian Joint Operations Command will be an asset to L3 Technologies in Canada and abroad. Among his many honors is his appointment as commander of the Order of Military Merit by the governor general of Canada for outstanding meritorious service and demonstrated leadership.
