That same year, he was honored by the Navy League of the United States with the 2009 Fleet Admiral Chester W. Nimitz award for exemplary leadership in the maritime defense industry.

During his military career, he was responsible for several submarine and weapons programs. Upon his retirement from the Navy he joined General Dynamics Electric Boat and held the position of Vice President for Full Submarine Support until he was promoted to President of Bath Iron Works.
