Live from THE SYNK
Jona Richardson, Finance Manager for Aerospace & Defense, Lockheed Martin 
March 27th, 2019
10:00 am - 10:30 am

This short session will focus on the business of aerospace. You've invited to meet Jona in a live ZOOM meeting.


A big part of Jona’s role as a Business Operations Manager or Finance Manager is ensuring they are following Earned Value Management (EVM) processes. The government requires that Lockheed Martin comply with guidelines for EVM from the Defense Acquisitions University (DAU). This includes civil programs like GOES-R, OSIRIS REx, MAVEN, and Juno, and our military programs, like FBM and GPS III. She is also responsible for working with Control Account Managers (CAMs) and making sure they are following EVM processes as well.



Programs that Jona Richardson has worked on:


  • 2018 – Present: Fleet Ballistic Missile (FBM) Program
  • 2017 – 2018: Global Positioning System (GPS) III Program
  • 2016: Operations, Sustainment & Logistics Programs
  • 2013 - 2015: Geostationary Operational Environmental Satellites (GOES-R) Programs
  • 2012: Financial Planning & Analysis for LM Space Systems (not a program, but performing FP&A on our Space segment as a whole)
  • 2010 - 2011: Osiris-Rex, MAVEN, Juno 
  • 2009 - 2010: Government Compliance for all LM Space Systems programs



We encourage everyone to do some additional research and come with questions.
