Steve Warren, 28-year Army veteran who handled communications and PA duties for the Pentagon before being pushed out this summer, has joined Aerojet Rocketdyne as chief communications officer.

He will handle internal/external communications, stakeholder outreach and serve as the top spokesperson for the El Segundo-based missile defense and aerospace company.

In his six-year run as Pentagon spokesperson, Warren served as coalition spokesperson for Operation Inherent Resolve in Iraq, director of defense press operations and senior military advisor to the assistant secretary of defense for public affairs.

Known for his blunt speaking style, Warren was bounced by the Pentagon in August and re-emerged in the media eye as an analyst at CNN.

Ellen Drake, AR CEO, said Warren is “a veteran warfighter and expert communicator” who will help the company enhance its partnership with its customers and employees.
