The CEO of Virginia Dominion Power will become the General Dynamics’ CEO in 2009, according to the Falls Church-based military contractor.
Jay Johnson of Dominion will take over for retiring Nicholas Chabraja on July 1, 2009.
Johnson retired as U.S. Navy admiral as chief of naval operations in 2000. He then joined Dominion, holding various roles before becoming CEO of Dominion Virginia Power in 2007. Johnson is already a member of General Dynamics’ board of directors. He will become vice chairman of the board on Sept. 2.
“His experience as a successful corporate executive at Dominion and Chief of Naval Operations of the U.S. Navy prepares him to be a successful and effective leader of General Dynamics,” Chabraja said in a statement.
Chabraja will remain on the board until 2010.
