Ray Bagley, a 40-year veteran of Huntington Ingalls Industries (NYSE: HII), has been named vice president for trades operations within the company’s Newport News Shipbuilding division.

His appointment is effective Dec. 8 and he succeeds Danny Hunley, who plans to retire at the end of the year after more than four decades with Newport News Shipbuilding, HII said Wednesday.

Bagley will oversee shipyard activities such as production, engineering, maintenance, instructional design and training, as well as manage the organization’s vocational apprenticeship school in his new position.

“He is committed to creating a work environment that puts people first, and that, combined with his knowledge of all shipyard programs, will be a great benefit to our operations and our shipbuilders, ” said Matt Mulherin, president of Newport News Shipbuilding.

Bagley has served as director of in-service aircraft carriers production before his appointment to the VP post.

He started his shipbuilding career as a painter at The Apprentice School in Virginia and since then has led construction and production operations across all Newport News Shipbuilding product lines.
