USA: HII Promotes Ron Murray to Vice President for NNS

Huntington Ingalls Industries announced that Ron Murray has been promoted to vice president of quality and process excellence for the company’s Newport News Shipbuilding (NNS) division.

As lead for the shipyard’s quality and process excellence policies and programs, Murray will oversee the planning, development and enforcement of quality and continuous improvement programs across the shipyard. He will report to NNS President Matt Mulherin.

This position is a key driver of Newport News Shipbuilding’s success,” Mulherin said. “Ron’s job is to oversee the quality processes and provide independent assurance that we produce a top-quality product. He brings to the position 23 years of experience, technical knowledge and a demonstrated commitment to continuous improvement and first-time quality that I am confident will continue to move our organization forward.”

Murray, a fourth-generation shipbuilder, has served in positions of increasing responsibility, including manager of the SUBSAFE program, design manager for the 688-class planning yard, and most recently director of quality and engineering services. He is a licensed professional engineer and a graduate of Virginia Tech, where he earned bachelor’s and master’s degrees.

I have a real appreciation for the products we build and the people who build them,” Murray said. “I recognize that I will be the gatekeeper to the business regarding the quality of our ships. This is no small task, but I could not imagine being in a different position in this company. It’s exactly where I want to be.”

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.
