He replaces Eric Crooker, who held the position for four years and transitioned to a new role as VP of infrastructure and sustainability, the company said Monday.
In his new role, Fitts will report to Keith Munn, VP of business management and chief financial officer at Ingalls Shipbuilding, and oversee contract award and administration, export and import licensing and compliance and estimating and pricing.
