BAE Systems has appointed Ian Lane as General Manager of BAE Systems Oman, based in Muscat.

Lane was previously the Vice President of Offset and Industrialisation, a post he held since joining BAE Systems in 2011. He succeeds Matthew Foster, who moved to the UK Defence Solutions Centre in the UK. 

“Ian will bring robust benefits to our operations in Oman and we welcome him back to the Sultanate in his new role,” said Guy Griffiths, Group managing director, International, BAE Systems. “BAE Systems has had a strong relationship with Oman for more than 40 years so it’s a very important market for us. Having someone of Ian’s experience heading our office in Muscat will ensure we continue to have a good relationship with the Omani customer, further strengthening our ties with the Sultanate.”

Lane said: “I look forward to working with His Majesty Sultan Qaboos’ Government and all of our Omani partners and stakeholders. The Sultanate is one of our most important partners in the region and we’re committed to developing programmes and solutions tailored to meeting their needs as well as developing Omani skills and talent.”

He added: “Oman is working to develop a national workforce powered by STEM education, putting engineering, aerospace and innovation at the heart of building a sustainable future. We continue to develop initiatives to support this national agenda and our education and industrial programmes will provide the Omani people with the skills to help achieve this goal.”
