Steve Wadey, formerly managing director of MBDA’s U.K. business, has taken on his new role as CEO at QinetiQ.

Wadey, whose appointment was announced in January 2015, is tasked to steer QinetiQ’s organic-plus growth strategy and lead more than 5,000 employees in the U.K., U.S., Belgium and Australia, QinetiQ said Monday.

“I am relishing my new role and look forward to working with all of our employees, who are held in high regard throughout the industry, as we develop and grow QinetiQ to meet changing customer needs in both defense and commercial markets,” said Wadey.

At MBDA, he helped to establish Team Complex Weapons as a way to collaborate with clients and industry.

Wadey will remain as co-chair of the defense growth partnership between the U.K. government and defense sector.

He is a fellow of the Royal Aeronautical Society, Institute of Engineering and Technology and Royal Academy of Engineering.
