Vice Admiral Thomas J. Moore (U.S. Navy, Ret.) worked as commander of Naval Sea Systems Command until June 2020. In that role, he oversaw the development, delivery, and maintenance of naval vessels and systems, as well as the launching of the Shipyard Infrastructure Optimization Plan. Before serving as commander, according to an official profile, he served as program executive officer for aircraft carriers, leading what was then the largest ship acquisition program in the Navy’s portfolio.
In December 2020, he joined the Board of Advisors at ITA International, a global service provider based in Newport News, Virginia. In a company press release, ITA Global Security President Mark Honecker said, “I had the privilege to work with Tom during my Navy career solving very challenging navy maintenance and acquisition issues. He will bring vision, energy and innovative solutions to ITA so we can continue to serve those ‘In The Arena.’”
In January 2021, Moore joined Huntington Ingalls Industries as vice president of nuclear operations for the company’s Nuclear and Environmental Services business group. Huntington Ingalls Industries designs, builds, and maintains nuclear and non-nuclear ships for the U.S. Navy and Coast Guard and provides after-market services for military ships around the world. According to federal contract spending data, Huntington Ingalls Industries won over $8 billion in federal government contracts in fiscal year 2020, $7.6 billion of which were with the Navy. A Huntington Ingalls Industries press release states that Moore will “be responsible for the oversight of all nuclear operations activities for Technical Solutions’ Department of Energy portfolio.” The press release stated that his “experience and leadership will build on the strength of an already deeply talented team supporting DOE and will help our business continue its strong record of performance and growth.”
In May 2021, Moore took on another position as a principal at Deep Water Point, a federal government services consulting firm based in Annapolis, Maryland. A company press release states: “The complexity of managing the development, acquisition, and delivery of highly sophisticated battle platforms such as a next generation nuclear powered aircraft carrier or submarine cannot be understated. Admiral Moore’s experience, intellect, and know-how will reap tremendous rewards for our clients.”
