According to a news report from the Marietta Daily Journal, Shan Cooper, general manager and vice president of Lockheed Martin Aeronautics Company in Marietta, Ga., has resigned.  Cooper was responsible for 6,300 employees. It is unclear what Cooper's next assignment will be. 

Cooper's last public appearance was noted Monday by the Watchdog at Turner Chapel AME Church during the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.'s birthday celebration. Lockheed Martin, the local NAACP, and Cobb County Government cosponsored the event. Cooper was a "Living the Dream" award recipient in 2013.

According to her company profile, Cooper joined Lockheed Martin in 2002 and prior to that, she held leadership positions with Lucent Technologies and consulted with other Fortune 500 companies. Cooper holds an MBA from Emory University and is a graduate of Rutgers.

Formerly Lockheed’s VP of Human Resources, Cooper is a wife and mother of one daughter. "I tell my employees to pray, and then get back to work," she told women at a conference in 2014.
