FALLS CHURCH, Va. – Jan. 23, 2023 – The following is a statement from Kathy Warden, chair, chief executive officer and president, Northrop Grumman:

We lost a member of our Northrop Grumman family with the passing of Bill Hernandez. Bill proudly served on our Board of Directors since 2013, and he will have an enduring impact on our company.

Bill had a way of being one of your favorite people to be around. I will miss his wise counsel and his stories about his life and business experiences. Most of all, I will miss his hearty laugh.

From all of us at Northrop Grumman, we extend our heartfelt condolences to Bill’s wife, Linda, and their family and friends.
