Huntington Ingalls Industries completes acquisition of Camber Corp. and forms new technical solutions division

hiiHuntington Ingalls Industries of Newport News, VA announced on December 2 that it has completed its previously announced acquisition of Camber Corporation and formed a new operating division, HII Technical Solutions. The new division will be led by Andy Green, who will serve as an executive vice president of HII and president of HII Technical Solutions, reporting directly to HII President and CEO Mike Petters.

“The acquisition of Camber and the consolidation of our existing service businesses into a dedicated division provides the breadth and scale necessary to successfully pursue numerous growth opportunities,” Petters said. “Camber brings a broad array of capabilities to the HII team, and we are excited about the possibilities of growing the combined businesses. This is an important investment in the future of our company, and we welcome Camber to the HII family.”

HII Technical Solutions is a professional services business providing solutions to a wide variety of government and commercial customers worldwide. The division provides agile software development and network engineering, training systems, logistics support, information technology, fleet maintenance and modernization, unmanned undersea systems, nuclear engineering and fabrication, and oil and gas engineering. HII Technical Solutions reflects the consolidation of Camber with several of HII’s existing subsidiaries, including AMSEC, Continental Maritime of San Diego, Newport News Industrial, SN3, Undersea Solutions Group and UniversalPegasus International.

“This new division will enhance strategic and operational alignment among our services businesses, expand opportunities for growth and, because it is a reportable operating segment, improve performance transparency,” Petters said. “Andy’s strong leadership and deep understanding of the services market make him the right choice to build and grow a highly competitive, people-driven, customer-centric professional services company.”

Green joined HII in 2011 and has since served in several leadership positions, including corporate vice president of investor relations, vice president of component manufacturing at Newport News Shipbuilding and, most recently, corporate vice president of corporate development, where he was responsible for all of HII’s corporate development activities related to shipbuilding and technical services. Prior to joining HII, he was vice president of investor relations at Celanese Corp., managing director at Wells Fargo Securities and manufacturing engineer at Eaton Corp. Green graduated from the United States Naval Academy with a bachelor’s degree in systems engineering and served as a nuclear submarine officer aboard USS Tecumseh (SSBN 628). He holds an M.B.A. from Duke University.
