"Dwayne's 28 years of experience at NNS, Northrop Grumman Newport News, Northrop Grumman Shipbuilding and HII position him for success in this new career opportunity," Niland said. "With the majority of his career spent in financial management, contracts and pricing, business planning, and treasury, Dwayne brings great experience along with a set of valuable and complementary skills to his new position."

Scott Stabler has served as the corporate vice president, operations, since the formation of HII in March 2011. In his new position, he will be responsible for maintaining an effective internal audit program that provides independent and objective evaluation of company processes and control systems. This includes the development and execution of an audit plan which assesses the company's operational effectiveness using enterprise risk-based methodology. He will administratively report to Niland with functional responsibility to the HII Audit Committee.

Stabler joined NNS in 1984 in carrier construction engineering and has held progressively responsible positions in supply chain, engineering, business development and program management for NNS, Northrop Grumman Newport News and Northrop Grumman Shipbuilding. He graduated from North Carolina State University in 1982 with a bachelor's degree in mechanical engineering and holds a MBA from the College of William and Mary.

"Scott brings to this position an impressive resume grounded in leading a wide variety of successful programs and teams," Niland said. "His demonstrated ability to work effectively across diverse populations and the scope of his management experience will serve him well in this position."
