Huntington Ingalls biz names nuclear operations VP
Retired Vice Adm. Thomas Moore served 39 years in Navy
Newport News-based Huntington Ingalls Industries (HII) announced Wednesday it has hired retired U.S. Navy Vice Adm. Thomas Moore as vice president of nuclear operations for its Nuclear and Environmental Services business group.
Moore served 39 years in the U.S. Navy, retiring in August 2020 as the commander of Naval Sea Systems Command, where he managed more than 83,000 people and an annual budget of more than $50 billion.
In his new role, he will oversee all nuclear operations for the business group’s Department of Energy portfolio. He will report directly to Michael Lempke, president of HII’s Nuclear and Environmental Services business group.
“Tom is an incredibly talented leader with nearly four decades of exemplary service to our nation,” Lempke said in a statement. “I am proud to have him on our senior leadership team and look forward to working together in supporting the mission of the DOE.”
Moore earned his bachelor’s degree in operations analysis from the U.S. Naval Academy, his master’s degree in information systems management from The George Washington University and another master’s degree in nuclear engineering from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.
HII is the nation’s largest military shipbuilding company, employing more than 42,000 people worldwide.
