Rolls-Royce has named Rob Watson as president of electrical, effective from 1 January 2022.
Watson has led Rolls-Royce Electrical since October 2017, having previously held a number of senior positions across the group during his ten years at the company.
Rolls-Royce’s CEO Warren East said: “Rob has played a fundamental role in building our Rolls-Royce Electrical business, which is leading us into exciting new advanced air mobility markets as we look to create significant commercial opportunities from the transition to net zero. I would like to welcome him to the executive team.
Last year Rolls-Royce announced that from the beginning of 2022, Rolls-Royce Electrical will operate a separate line item in the group’s financial statements, alongside its three established business units and Rolls-Royce SMR.
