Bharat Amin, former vice president and chief information officer at Huntington Ingalls Industries’ (NYSE: HII) Newport News Shipbuilding division, has been named executive VP and CIO of the company.

He will report directly to Mike Petters, president and CEO of HII and previous Wash100 winner, and lead the establishment of information technology, cybersecurity and other digital strategies, HII said Wednesday.

The company added Amin will manage IT governance functions across its business units.
