Shipway Appointed as President of Bath Iron Works

Monday, April 28, 2003
General Dynamics announced the appointment of John F. "Dugan" Shipway, 60, as president of Bath Iron Works, reporting to Michael W. Toner, executive vice president of General Dynamics Marine Systems group. Shipway succeeds Allan C. Cameron, 57, who has announced his retirement. Cameron had been president of Bath Iron Works since 1996. "Allan Cameron carried on the long shipbuilding tradition of 'Bath-built is best-built,'" said Nicholas D. Chabraja, General Dynamics chairman and CEO. "He recognized that great shipbuilders need modern tools. Through the development and construction of the new land-level facility, he brought Bath Iron Works into shipbuilding's 21st century," said Chabraja. "We thank him for his contributions, and wish him all the best in retirement." "Bath Iron Works makes the best surface combatants in the world," said Cameron. "It has been my great pleasure to work with a talented group of people. I leave Bath with deep pride and confidence in the work force, knowing that the ships we built together will serve the Navy well for decades to come." Shipway, who retired from the U.S. Navy as a rear admiral after 35 years of service, joined General Dynamics Electric Boat in July 2000 as special assistant to the president. "Dugan Shipway is a natural choice for this very important assignment, and I have great confidence that Bath Iron Works will thrive under his leadership," said Chabraja. "He is a strong and capable manager, and he is committed to quality, efficiency and productivity," said Chabraja. "Dugan will make sure that this great shipyard meets its enormous potential." Before retiring from the Navy in 2000, Shipway served in a succession of high-level posts. These included director of Strategic Systems Programs; commander of the Naval Undersea Warfare Center; deputy commander for submarines at Naval Sea Systems Command; program executive officer for submarines; and direct reporting program manager for the Seawolf program. Shipway earned a bachelor's degree in chemical engineering and a master's degree in engineering, both from the University of Louisville.
