Behind the Mission: Meet Todd

October 26, 2022

#WeAreTextronSystems, comprised of hardworking employees devoted to our mission to serve those who serve.

Todd, Senior Information Systems Security Manager, is one of the many veterans who make up a quarter of our employee population.

From 2014-2017, Todd served in the New Hampshire Army National Guard as an infantryman with C. Co 3-172nd. In 2017, he transitioned to Active-Duty Army and joined as an enlisted Infantryman with A Co. 1-327 1BCT 101st Airborne Division (Air Assault) at Ft. Campbell, Kentucky.

Todd spent nine months in Qayyarah, Iraq in 2019 where he was on the Quick Reaction Force (QRF) and participated in Key Leader Engagements (KLEs) in Operation Inherent Resolve. During his time in Iraq, he received several awards for his service, including the Army Commendation Medal, a mid-level United States military decoration presented for sustained acts of heroism or meritorious service.

Following his service in the Army, Todd joined our ranks and began his career as a member of the Cybersecurity team at Textron Systems.

“Being able to protect National Security and help protect the warfighter is my own way of continuing to serve,” said Todd, who has now been with Textron Systems for a little over a year.

“As a Veteran, Textron Systems provided me with opportunities to grow and develop my post-military career by nominating me to attend Textron Systems Leadership Essentials (TLE), which was eye-opening and one of the best leadership courses I’ve taken,” Todd said. “For me, TLE provided me with a new perspective for leading teams in the corporate world while simultaneously leveraging the leadership skills I gained throughout my military career.”

Since joining Textron Systems, he has found a variety of ways to get involved, including joining Veteran’s Network (VETNET), an employee resource group dedicated to supporting our veterans.

“Becoming a member of VETNET has been a great opportunity for me to develop myself post-military by connecting with like-minded individuals who have gone through similar experiences,” Todd said.

Looking ahead, he’s most excited about how rapidly Textron Systems is scaling.

“We continue win contracts and successfully achieve our objectives as an organization,” Todd said. “Textron Systems provides great opportunities for growth, career advancement and to work on incredible programs.”
