"HII has demonstrated a longstanding commitment to the highest ethical
standards and compliance across its entire operation," said Mike Petters,
HII's president and CEO. "Chad's new role as chief compliance officer is a
valuable enhancement of our existing compliance program, and he has my full
support and confidence. His new responsibilities complement—but do not
replace—the responsibility of every individual shipbuilder to comply with the
law and to uphold our company's values."

Hawthorne added, "Naming a proven professional with Chad's experience and
leadership skills to the chief compliance officer position further
demonstrates HII's commitment to compliance and to the highest standards of
ethical conduct at every level of our organization—from each individual
craftsman to HII's Board of Directors."

Boudreaux joined HII in 2011 as corporate vice president for litigation,
investigations and compliance. He will continue to serve as corporate vice
president for litigation while also assuming his new role as chief compliance
officer. In his new role, Chad will provide centralized oversight, leadership
and coordination of HII's compliance with applicable laws, regulations, and
its policies and procedures designed to prevent misconduct. The chief
compliance officer's responsibilities will include promoting the importance of
compliance at HII, regularly assessing and improving compliance efforts, and
anticipating future compliance needs.

Before joining HII, Boudreaux worked for Baker Botts LLP, where he established
the law firm's Global Security and Corporate Risk Counseling practice group.
He has also held various high-ranking positions in the U.S. government. From
2005-06, he was the deputy chief of staff of the U.S. Department of Homeland
Security under U.S. Secretary of Homeland Security Michael Chertoff. From
2001-05, he held multiple leadership positions at the U.S. Department of
Justice under U.S. Attorney General John Ashcroft. Boudreaux started his legal
career in 1998 at a litigation firm in Austin, Texas.

Boudreaux earned a bachelor of arts degree from Baylor University and a juris
doctor degree from the University of Memphis School of Law. He is a recipient
of the Justice Department's Special Commendation for Outstanding Service for
