Blake, formerly the corporate vice president, internal audit, is replacing Andy Green, who is leaving the corporate staff for a position at HII's Newport News Shipbuilding division (NNS). Blake's responsibilities will include acting as the primary interface between the investment community and the company with a focus on helping to educate institutional investors and research analysts on the company's business strategy, operations and financial results. He will also work closely with the finance, communications and legal teams to analyze financial results, develop earnings announcements, perform competitor and stock trading analysis and ensure compliance with all SEC regulations. He will report directly to Barbara A. Niland, corporate vice president, business management, and chief financial officer.
"Dwayne's 28 years of experience at NNS, Northrop Grumman Newport News, Northrop Grumman Shipbuilding and HII position him for success in this new career opportunity," said Barbara A. Niland.
Scott Stabler has served as the corporate vice president, operations, since the formation of HII in March 2011. In his new position, he will be responsible for maintaining an effective internal audit program that provides independent and objective evaluation of company processes and control systems. This includes the development and execution of an audit plan which assesses the company's operational effectiveness using enterprise risk-based methodology. He will administratively report to Niland with functional responsibility to the HII Audit Committee.
