Austal USA announces the promotion of Craig Perciavalle to President, Austal USA.

Mr. Perciavalle is currently serving as Senior Vice President of Operations.  He joined Austal USA in 2007, serving in a number of senior management positions while overseeing Austal’s transition from a small, conventional commercial shipyard to an efficient, modular manufacturer of the Navy’s Littoral Combat Ship and Joint High Speed Vessel.

“Craig helped design, build and staff Austal’s American facilities” said Andrew Bellamy, Austal’s Chief Executive Officer, “he is uniquely prepared to transition this shipyard into serial production and manufacture ships at a pace unmatched in the United States today.”
Austal USA Interim President and Chief Financial Officer, Brian Leathers, was promoted to Senior Vice President and Chief Financial Officer.

“I am pleased to see Craig Perciavalle take the helm,” said Austal USA Chairman Rear Admiral Dugan Shipway, “He is a true American shipbuilder who will deliver on our existing naval contracts.”

Austal USA is a full-service shipyard offering design, construction and high-speed vessel service and repair, currently under contract with the U.S. Navy to build nine 103-meter JHSVs under a 10-ship, $1.6 billion contract and five 127-meter Independence-variant LCS class ships, four of which are a part of a 10-ship, $3.5 billion contract.
