Huntington Ingalls said today Michael Smith, executive vice president for strategy and development, is moving to the company's technical solutions division to oversee the SN3 business, effective immediately.

Additionally, Scott Stabler, executive vice president for internal audit, has been named chief transformation officer, the shipbuilder said.

Smith joined the company in 2014 as corporate vice president for business growth. He previously worked for BAE Systems.

Stabler was hired by Newport News Shipbuilding in 1984 and has held a variety of positions, including vice president of assembly and vice president of aircraft carrier construction.

"In his new role, Stabler will work directly with HII’s divisions to assess and facilitate implementation of the transformative business model and process changes necessary to meet rapidly evolving customer demands," Huntington Ingalls said. "The scope is open-ended but will initially focus on HII’s digital, technological and supply chain strategies."
