Philip A. Dur To Head Northrop Grumman's Ship Systems Sector

Wednesday, August 22, 2001
Northrop Grumman Corporation has appointed Philip A. Dur as corporate vice president and president of the company's Ship Systems sector - the largest builder of non-nuclear ships for the U.S. Navy.

He will assume his new position on Oct. 1, succeeding Jerry St. Pe, who announced his decision to retire on Oct. 31 after 40 years with the company.

Dur, a former rear admiral of the U.S. Navy, currently serves as vice president of Program Operations at the Electronic Sensors and Systems Sector, the company's largest sector with annual revenues of approximately $5 billion. He manages the sector's business operations, oversees program execution and acquisition, and alliance activities.

Dur served in the Navy as assistant deputy chief of naval operations; director, Navy strategy division; commander, battle force Sixth Fleet; and commander, cruiser-destroyer group eight, where he was responsible for the combat readiness of 35 cruisers and destroyers, a battleship and 11,000 personnel. He also served as commanding officer of two Ingalls-built surface combatants.

Dur, who holds both a bachelors and master's degree from the University of Notre Dame, as well as a master's degree and a doctorate from Harvard University, has been with the company in 1999 following five years with Tenneco, Inc., where he served most recently as vice president, Worldwide Business Development and Strategy.
