Raytheon says it will cut 200 jobs

The company also said it has elected Thomas Kennedy to the new position of executive vice president and chief operating officer. Kennedy previously was vice president of Raytheon and president of its integrated defense systems business. He will lead the company’s consolidation efforts and will manage day-to-day operating activities, along with contributing to long-range planning.

The company reported in January that its fourth-quarter net income fell 14 percent as it suffered from lackluster sales in an era of military cost-cutting.
