John "Jay" Donnelly

Huntington Ingalls Industries made two appointments to its government and customer relations leadership team. Carolyn E. Apostolou has been named vice president for legislative affairs (Senate), and Vice Adm. John "Jay" Donnelly (U.S. Navy, Ret.) has been named vice president of program integration and assessment. Apostolou joined on April 29, and Donnelly reported on May 6. Both report to Mitchell B. Waldman, corporate vice president, government and customer relations.

"Carrie and Jay come to us with several decades of experience in their respective fields," Waldman said. "Carrie has a comprehensive knowledge of the federal budget process and expertise in a wide range of issues, including national security and energy. Jay had a long and distinguished Navy career and brings to us a unique, senior-level customer perspective. Both bring a unique understanding of our business challenges to their positions."

Apostolou will be responsible for the development of lobbying strategy and implementation of lobbying activity, with a general focus on U.S. Senate members, staff and committees of jurisdiction. She also will be responsible for ensuring compliance with all Federal Election Commission and all other legal and regulatory disclosure requirements regarding lobbying activity. Other duties include the shaping of legislative proposals and special authorities.

Apostolou graduated from Wake Forest University and has worked on the U.S. Senate Committee on Appropriations since 1987. She served as staff director of the legislative branch subcommittee from 2001 to 2009 and as minority staff director of the subcommittee on energy and water development from 2009 to 2013. In 2012, she was listed on CQ Roll Call's "30 Aides to Know."

Donnelly will be responsible for working with federal entities and chartered study groups, industry associations, academic institutions and think-tanks that are engaged in shaping future architectures and capabilities that will be realized in the "fleet after next" and other prospective markets. He will also support corporate consideration of Independent Research and Development (IRAD) priorities and other strategic initiatives.

Donnelly graduated from the U.S. Naval Academy in 1975 and served 35 years in the Navy. Most recently, he served as commander, Submarine Forces, responsible for establishing force-wide strategies on core submarine issues such as force structure, budgetary requirements and manpower. After retiring from the Navy, Donnelly served as vice president with the advanced technologies group of Oceaneering International, Inc.
