Rolls-Royce North America president and CEO Marion Blakey will leave her positions at the end of June, the company announced Feb. 15.

Rolls-Royce said it will announce its succession plans for its North America leadership in the “near future.” The British parent company has been going through several years of restructuring and downsizing and just a few weeks ago unveiled leadership changes at headquarters.

“On behalf of the Rolls-Royce executive leadership team and board, I would like to take this opportunity to thank Marion for her commitment and dedication to Rolls-Royce over the past three years,” Rolls-Royce plc CEO Warren East said. “She should be proud of the impact she has made in her tenure with Rolls-Royce.”

In the statement, Blakey—who took the role in May 2015 after years of heading the powerhouse lobbying Aerospace Industries Association and before that the FAA and of the National Transportation Safety Board—called her time at Rolls-Royce an “incredible privilege” and declared a bright future for the company.

“I've been extremely fortunate to have had a rewarding career in both the public and private sectors,” Blakey said. “However, I’ve decided it's the right time for me to announce my retirement from Rolls-Royce and help ensure we have the time for a smooth transition.”

On Jan. 31, East announced that Chris Cholerton, currently president of the parent’s defense unit, has been appointed the same position at civil aerospace, while Tom Bell, previously global sales and marketing head for Boeing Defense, Space & Security, was returning to lead an “enlarged” Defense business. Before joining Boeing in 2015, Bell was president of Rolls-Royce Defense Aerospace.

Rolls-Royce also announced it was looking to sell its commercial marine unit.
