L3 Technologies said today it has named Sean Stackley, hired early this year, president of its communications and networked systems business.

He succeeds Andrew Ivers, who will retire at the end of this year “to pursue other opportunities,” L3 said.

The business unit Stackley will lead has been reshaped so that it includes all maritime capabilities, the contractor said today. Both the realignment of the business and Stackley's appointment are effective immediately.

Stackley previously served as acting Navy secretary. He also spent nine years as assistant secretary of the Navy for research, development and acquisition and was a staff member on the Senate Armed Services Committee.

Last month, L3 consolidated its aerospace systems business with its sensor systems unit to form a new intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance systems segment. The company has also has an electronic systems unit.
