Rob Watson

London: Rolls-Royce has announced that Rob Watson has joined the Executive Team as President – Electrical with effect from 1 January 2022.

“Rob has led Rolls-Royce Electrical since October 2017, having previously held a number of senior corporate and business roles across the group during his 10-year career with us,” the company said in a press release.

“This follows our announcement, at our half year results, that from the beginning of this year we will report Rolls-Royce Electrical as a separate line item in our financial statements, alongside our three established business units and Rolls-Royce SMR,” it added.

Rolls-Royce Electrical offers aviation customers a complete electric propulsion system for their platform, whether that is an electric vertical takeoff and landing (eVTOL) or commuter aircraft.

In 2021, Rolls-Royce Electrical announced partnerships with Vertical Aerospace, Eve and Tecnam and also staked the claim for the world’s fastest all-electric aircraft with the Spirit of Innovation.

Warren East, CEO, Rolls-Royce, said: “Rob has played a fundamental role in building our Rolls-Royce Electrical business, which is leading us into exciting new advanced air mobility markets as we look to create significant commercial opportunities from the transition to net zero. I would like to welcome him to the Executive Team.”
