Northrop Grumman Corporation's Newport News sector announced the appointment of Matthew J. Mulherin as sector vice president of the CVNX program, which includes design and engineering work associated with the new class of nuclear-powered aircraft carriers for the United States Navy. Mr. Mulherin, 43, is responsible for program management, engineering, production and planning for the CVNX program. "Matt brings to this position a high level of expertise in the nuclear shipbuilding arena and a good understanding of our customer's objectives in the design and engineering of the future class of carriers," said Thomas C. Schievelbein, corporate vice president and president of the Newport News sector. Prior to this promotion, Mr. Mulherin served as program director, CVNX. Mr. Mulherin began his career at Newport News in 1981 as a nuclear test engineer. He has held increasingly responsible positions including Nuclear Project manager for Los Angeles-class submarines; director, Facilities; and director, Nuclear Engineering and Refueling. He holds a Bachelor of Science in civil engineering from Virginia Polytechnic University. With Mr. Mulherin's appointment, Newport News has also restructured the sector's engineering organization. New aircraft carrier construction and aircraft carrier overhaul engineering and design departments will report to Bob Gunter, senior vice president, Aircraft Carrier Program. Submarine design and engineering departments will report to Don Check, vice president, Submarine Program. The CVN 77 warfare systems engineering and design, along with the Washington, D.C., engineering office, will report to Irwin F. Edenzon, vice president, Business and Technology Development. The test engineering organizations for all products will be consolidated under Rolf Bartschi, director and chief nuclear engineer. "This restructuring will align our engineering resources with the programs they support," said Mr. Schievelbein.
