Group Business Development Chief of Staff. MBDA
Rebecca started her career in finance but quickly grew bored of spreadsheets and ran away to sea. In a twenty year career in the Royal Navy, she qualified as a meteorologist, commanded over 120 personnel on global operations and learnt to identify 80 species of fish.
Working in the Ministry of Defence, she designed and implemented a major transformation programme, worked as the First Sea Lord’s Head of Communications and founded the Royal Navy’s Neurodiversity Network.
Her final role was on loan to the Cabinet Office, working on evacuation operations from Afghanistan and delivering international military support to Ukraine.
Rebecca joined MBDA in 2022 and is now the Group Business Development Chief of Staff, coordinating multinational programme campaigns and the development of new product options.
