Career devoted to maritime defence supply leads to Curtiss-Wright senior executive receiving the Nimitz Award from the Navy League
Curtiss-Wright has announced that the Navy League of the United States will present its 2010 Fleet Admiral Chester Nimitz Award for exemplary leadership in the maritime Defence industry to Curtiss-Wright Executive Richard Langseder at the Navy League Sea-Air-Space Exposition dinner on Tuesday, May the 4th. The dinner and award ceremony will be held at the Gaylord National Resort and Convention Centre in National Harbour.

'Curtiss-Wright is extremely fortunate to have such a consummate professional like Dick Langseder who has dedicated his entire career to serving the US Navy and its Naval Nuclear Program,' said Martin Benante, CEO and Chairman of Curtiss-Wright Corporation. 'Working side-by-side with Dick for more than 20 years, he has demonstrated a diligence and passion for identifying viable solutions to the Navy's most critical challenges and a keen understanding of the safety required to harness nuclear power. This award is a testament to his patriotism, professional accomplishments and unwavering personal commitment.'

Langseder currently serves as senior vice president of business development at Curtiss-Wright Flow Control Company (CWFC). He is responsible for the company's strategic planning and for driving new business opportunities and technologies. During his 43-year tenure with Curtiss-Wright, he has held a number of senior management positions, including Interim President of CWFC.

Langseder began his career with General Dynamics Electric Boat Division as a research and development engineer where he participated in the early implementation of the Navy's Sub Safe Program. He later joined the Grumman Aircraft Engineering Corporation where he served as a flight test engineer before joining Curtiss-Wright.

Langseder is active in numerous professional organizations, including the Navy League of the United States, the American Society of Naval Engineers, the Naval Institute, the American Nuclear Society, the American Society of Mechanical Engineers and the American Society of Materials.
