Prior to that, he served as executive vice president of the Combat Systems Group, president of General Dynamics Fort Worth aircraft company (later Lockheed), president of General Dynamics Land Systems Company, and principal of a mergers and acquisition consulting company.

England recently donated funds for a UMD veteran's center. He also is the donor of a scholarship for engineering students. A native of Baltimore, England currently lives in Fort Worth, Texas.
