HII Names James Loeblein as Corporate VP of Customer Affairs

James Loeblein will serve as Huntington Ingalls Industries' new corporate vice president of customer affairs, succeeding Dan Holloway in the role.

Loeblein will be responsible for outreach to executive branch principals and the fleet portfolio from Washington, D.C., HII said Tuesday.

“Jim has extensive naval experience and a strong background in defense policy development and Navy staff operations and strategy," said Mitch Waldman, HII's executive vice president for government and customer relations.

Loeblein most recently served as the vice president of naval requirements and capabilities within Raytheon Technologies' missiles and defense division. 

He previously served as the Navy's chief of legislative affairs, responsible for directing the service's congressional legislative functions and strategy in support of the chief of naval operations. He retired in 2019 as a rear admiral after 34 years of service. 

During his stint in the Navy, Loeblein served as a surface warfare officer and commanded USS Thach (FFG 43), Destroyer Squadron 9 and Carl Vinson Carrier Strike Group 1.

His other credits include deputy commander and director of operations of U.S. Naval Forces Central Command and director of Navy Senate liaison and director of operations.

Loeblein earned a bachelor's degree in applied science from the U.S. Naval Academy, a master's degree in electrical engineering from the Naval Postgraduate School and a master's degree in national security and strategic studies from Naval War College.
