"In this newly formed position, Chris and his team will initially lead the efforts to explore redeployment opportunities for Avondale outside HII's core military shipbuilding business," Petters said.

Prior to the HII spin from Northrop Grumman Corp., he served as vice president, business management, and CFO for Northrop Grumman Shipbuilding-Gulf Coast and vice president, contracts and risk management, for Northrop Grumman Ship Systems. He held several positions at other Northrop Grumman businesses, including service as the corporate director of strategic transactions. He holds a bachelor's degree in political science from the University of California at Santa Barbara and a master's degree in business administration from Pepperdine University.
