Technical Director and Director of Field Operations
Raytheon Technical Services Company


As director of Field Operations and technical director for RTSC's worldwide field support operators, Steve Fox is responsible for leading a qualified workforce of 1,400 people — certainly no small task. But if you ask Fox, he feels well prepared for the job.

Before Raytheon, Fox spent 28 years in the U.S. Army in a variety of leadership positions. "I designed and managed ground- and space-based intelligence and communications systems," said Fox, who holds three master's degrees in electrical engineering, national security and strategic studies. "Years of having to quickly solve problems — both engineering and operational — prepared me for finding solutions to RTSC's diverse portfolio."

The Army also honed Fox's people skills, a valuable asset for someone who leads as many engineers as Fox does. "When I worked in the classified world — as the project manager of the Tactical Exploitation of National Capabilities program office — I learned to gently lead a disparate group of stakeholders toward a common goal."

The engineers and field operators in Fox's charge are always on his mind. According to Fox, one of his biggest challenges is taking the creative ideas of his people and quickly applying them to develop solutions to meet pressing customer needs.
