BAE Names Clifford as President of Ship Repair Business

Wednesday, January 09, 2008
BAE Systems has appointed Bill Clifford as president of its Ship Repair business, effective April 1, 2008. Clifford will succeed Al Krekich, who will retire March 31, 2008, after serving as Ship Repair’s president for the past 10 years.

As president, Clifford will lead the operation and grow the business, which provides ship maintenance and modernization services to U.S. Navy, government and commercial customers from shipyards in Norfolk, San Diego, San Francisco and Hawaii. Ship Repair also includes the Maritime Engineering & Services business area, headquartered in San Diego.

Clifford has been with the company since 2004, when he served as president and general manager of Hawaii Shipyards, Inc., a United Defense Industries (UDI), Inc. company. He became president and general manager of BAE Systems Norfolk Ship Repair when BAE Systems acquired UDI in 2005. Following a 20-year active duty career in the U.S. Navy -- during which he served in a variety of command positions at sea and ashore -- Clifford held positions of increasing responsibility in the private sector ship repair industry.

Clifford holds a Master’s Degree in Mechanical Engineering from the Naval Postgraduate School and a Bachelor of Science from the U.S. Naval Academy.
