Geiger stepping down as president ofsub-maker Electric Boat



GROTON, Conn. (AP) — Submarine manufacturer Electric Boat has announced a change in leadership.

Jeffrey Geiger, who has served as president of the General Dynamics subsidiary since 2013, says he is retiring at the end of the month. Electric Boat says Geiger will be replaced by Kevin Graney, the president of General Dynamics NASSCO, another shipbuilder.

Graney began his shipbuilding career with Electric Boat in 1995 as a engineer for the Virginia-class submarine program. He became president of NASSCO in 2017.

Connecticut Gov. Ned Lamont released a statement Saturday saying he plans to meet with Graney to talk about the state’s commitment to Electric Boat.

The company on Friday held a groundbreaking for a new assembly building at its Groton shipyard that will be used to help build the Navy’s next-generation Columbia-class nuclear submarine.
