Henderson Assumes Leadership Role as President of SAE International

WARRENDALE, Pa., Feb. 22, 2006 -

Greg W. Henderson, P.E., an engineering director at Lockheed Martin Aeronautics Company, has been named 2006 president of SAE International.

Henderson has been an active and decorated member of SAE for nearly 30 years, having become involved with SAE as a student at Oklahoma State University.

“When you think of the ideal characteristics that you want in an SAE President, you come up with Greg Henderson,” said SAE Executive Vice President Raymond A. Morris. “Greg brings many outstanding qualities to the position: He has been involved with SAE since college and he has an acute understanding of the importance and value of SAE. As a respected aerospace professional, he not only brings his aeronautics expertise to the table, but he has a great understanding of SAE’s broader sphere of influence including the automotive sector.”

Prior to being named president, Henderson served as SAE's treasurer and had been a member of the SAE Board of Directors from 1991-1993 and from 2001-present. In 1999, he received SAE's most distinguished award, the SAE Medal of Honor.

Henderson became the first SAE White House Fellow in the Executive Office of the President, Office of Science and Technology Policy, in 1986. While in this position, he was a senior policy analyst in the areas of industrial competitiveness, high-temperature superconductivity and electronics. In addition, he chaired the White House Committee on Materials and was a member of the U.S. Committee on Foreign Investment.

“It would be a bit of an understatement to say that I’m honored to have been named SAE president,” Henderson said. “SAE plays a critical role in the development of standards for the way we move in our world – whether in the air or over the highway. To be named the president of an organization that is not only dear to my heart, but which holds such awesome responsibilities for our society, is simply overwhelming.”

Henderson earned his bachelor’s degree in industrial administration from the University of Connecticut and a master’s degree in mechanical engineering from Oklahoma State University. Henderson is a resident of Fort Worth, Texas.
