Norm Augustine, the former chief executive officer of Lockheed Martin and the company’s current executive committee chairman, will address Montgomery College students and the college community on the topic of: “Leadership in a ‘Dot Com’ World,” at a special lecture sponsored by the College’s Macklin Business Institute.
As chairman and CEO of the corporation until his retirement in 1997, Augustine engineered some of the most successful acquisitions in recent corporate history. Under his leadership, Lockheed Martin emerged as one of the top two defense and aerospace firms in the world. Augustine has authored, co-authored, and contributed to many books on leadership and management. His most recent work is the critically acclaimed Shakespeare in Charge: The Bard’s Guide to Leading and Succeeding on the Business Stage, which he co-wrote with former U.N. Ambassador, Ken Adelman.

(NOTE TO EDITORS: Augustine and Michael Bloomberg, founder and chief executive officer of Bloomberg Multimedia, will be among a prestigious group of national and local business leaders participating earlier that morning in a President’s Forum Breakfast hosted by Charlene R. Nunley, president of Montgomery College.
Other participants in the President’s Forum -- which will showcase some of the College’s outstanding students and programs -- will include County Executive Douglas M. Duncan and the College’s two largest individual donors, Gordon Macklin and Paul Peck.
