USA: HII Names New Director of Customer Relations

Huntington Ingalls Industries has appointed Marty Erdossy to corporate director of customer relations for the company’s Newport News Shipbuilding (NNS) division.

Erdossy is responsible for liaising with the U.S. Navy, HII’s Washington, D.C., office and aircraft carrier programs at NNS to respond to the Navy’s requirements and ensure productive communication and information flow. Erdossy will be located in the Washington, D.C., office and report to Marty Chanik, HII corporate vice president of customer relations.

Marty brings a valuable perspective to the position as a former aircraft carrier commanding officer,Chanik said. “His knowledge and understanding of our Navy customer will be critical to our shipbuilding efforts as we continue to improve on cost and process efficiencies.

Prior to joining HII, Erdossy worked for more than six years as a senior principal engineer for Gryphon Technologies, LC, an engineering and technical services firm that provides support to national security and coalition forces. He served 33 years in the Navy, retiring at the rank of captain. During his naval service, Erdossy commanded USS Arctic, a fast combat support ship, through a Persian Gulf combat deployment, and the aircraft carrier USS George Washington (CVN 73) during two Middle East combat deployments. He also served as executive officer for the aircraft carrier USS Theodore Roosevelt (CVN 71) during its docking planned incremental availability at NNS. Erdossy earned a bachelor’s degree in mechanical engineering from the University of Louisville.

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.
