NEWPORT NEWS, VA (WLOX) - His job is staying the same, but Irwin F. Edenzon now has a new title at Ingalls Shipbuilding in Pascagoula.
The former vice president and general manager of Gulf Coast operations for Huntington Ingalls Industries is now a corporate vice president and president of Ingalls Shipbuilding.
Matthew J. Mulherin will fill the same role at Newport News Shipbuilding in Virginia. The company's Board of Directors approved the positions Tuesday.
"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 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.
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.
Huntington Ingalls Industries has nearly 38,000 employees in Virginia, Mississippi, Louisiana and California. Its primary business divisions are Newport News Shipbuilding and Ingalls Shipbuilding.
