Bradley Feldmann took the helm as CEO at San Diego’s Cubic Corp. (NYSE: CUB) on Tuesday, following the long-planned retirement of 79-year-old William Boyle, whose term in the office capped 30 years of work at the company.
Feldmann, 52, was named president and chief operating officer in January 2013, after five years of overseeing the company’s defense systems segment. Before coming to Cubic in 2008, he worked in the senior leadership of Omniplex World Services Corp. and ManTech International (Nasdaq: MANT).
Boyle joined Cubic in 1983 and was named CEO in 2012 after the death of Cubic’s founder Walter J. Zable, who had headed the firm for 62 years and was the oldest chief executive of a publicly traded company in the world at 97. Boyle will remain on the board of directors and work as an adviser to Feldmann through next February. The founder’s son, Chairman Walter C. Zable, praised Boyle for making “a huge contribution to the company” with his financial and operations expertise.
