McDonnell talks to Northrop Grumman about headquarters move
Wes Bush, Northrop Grumman's new chief executive and president, paid a visit to Richmond today to speak to Gov. Bob McDonnell (R) about possibly moving the company's headquarters to Virginia.
McDonnell and Bush spent about an hour talking this morning at the state Capitol.
Maryland, Virginia and the District are all vying to host the defense contractor, which announced plans last month to move its headquarters to the Washington region from Los Angeles.
Our colleagues in Annapolis reported earlier today that Bush and Gaston Kent, vice president of finance, spent more than an hour in the State House in Annapolis this afternoon, meeting with Gov. Martin O'Malley (D) and legislative leaders.
Two sources with knowledge of Northrop Grumman's site-selection process told The Post last week that company executives are looking at a June 2011 move-in date to an existing facility for about 150 employees. Four sites are being considered in Fairfax County and one in Arlington County, the sources said.
Northrop Grumman spokesman Randy Belote last week said a selection had not been made, saying the company has yet to receive formal proposals from officials in any of the three jurisdictions.
