Todd Shipyards ( TOD) named Dale E. Baugh senior director Navy programs at its Todd Pacific unit.

Baugh was director of ship repair processes at Todd Pacific before taking the new post. The Seattle-based ship repair shop said the move "is part of a significant undertaking to better align our repair services with those of our largest customer, the US Navy, and to provide the necessary ongoing improvements in customer cost, cycle time, safety, and quality."

Baugh will have responsibility for Todd Pacific's Aircraft Carrier, Surface Combatant, and Submarine product lines, and spend the majority of his time in Bremerton, Wash.

Before coming to Todd Pacific in 2003, Baugh had a distinguished career in the Navy. He commanded the Puget Sound Naval Shipyard from 1995-1999, and after promotion to Rear Admiral, served as Deputy Commander of Logistics and Maintenance for Naval Sea Systems Command in Washington, D.C.

Todd, which has run a shipyard in Seattle since 1916, slipped a dime Tuesday to $22.30.
