USA: Huntington Ingalls Appoints New Division Presidents

Huntington Ingalls Industries, Inc.  announced today that its Board of Directors has approved Irwin F. Edenzon as corporate vice president and president of Ingalls Shipbuilding and Matthew J. Mulherin as corporate vice president and president of Newport News Shipbuilding. HII, previously known as Northrop Grumman Shipbuilding, began operating on March 31 as an independent, publicly traded company after being spun off from Northrop Grumman Corp.

“The HII Board’s decision to name Irwin and Matt as presidents of their respective shipyards more accurately reflects the scope of their responsibility and accountability in leading the operations of the two largest components of our company,” said Mike Petters, Huntington Ingalls Industries president and chief executive officer.

Edenzon, former vice president and general manager of HII’s Gulf Coast operations, will continue his oversight over all programs and operations at Ingalls Shipbuilding, including U.S. Navy destroyer, amphibious assault and surface combatant programs, and the U.S. Coast Guard cutter program. He is also responsible for two HII subsidiaries, Continental Maritime San Diego and AMSEC. Edenzon has also served as sector vice president and general manager for Northrop Grumman Shipbuilding-Gulf Coast, as well as director of future carrier programs and senior vice president of technology development and fleet support for Northrop Grumman Newport News. He earned a bachelor’s degree in criminal justice from Rutgers University and a master’s degree in business administration from Florida Atlantic University.

Mulherin, former vice president and general manager of HII’s Newport News operations, will continue his responsibilities for all Newport News Shipbuilding engineering, operations and programs, including nuclear-powered aircraft carriers and submarines. Mulherin also served as vice president and general manager of site operations at Newport News as part of Northrop Grumman Shipbuilding, successfully leading the sector’s aircraft carrier design and construction programs, carrier refueling and overhaul programs, and the submarine program. Mulherin earned a bachelor’s degree in civil engineering from Virginia Tech in 1981 and began his career at Newport News the same year as a nuclear test engineer.

Huntington Ingalls Industries (HII) designs, builds and maintains nuclear and non-nuclear ships for the U.S. Navy and Coast Guard and provides after-market services for military ships around the globe. For more than a century, HII has built more ships in more ship classes than any other U.S. naval shipbuilder. Employing nearly 38,000 in Virginia, Mississippi, Louisiana and California, its primary business divisions are Newport News Shipbuilding and Ingalls Shipbuilding.
