“Julie’s focus on strengthening IT teams and capabilities to enable business optimization will modernize Bath Iron Works’ IT infrastructure and processes to meet the demands of on-time delivery of our Navy ships,” BIW President Chuck Krugh said in a news release.

Before joining BIW, Berry worked for Steward Healthcare System LLC from 2011 to 2021, serving as chief technology and information officer.

Berry received her bachelor’s degree in computer information systems from Suffolk University in Boston. She has served on several boards and advisory committees as chair of the Massachusetts Health Data Consortium, where she led efforts to advance data standardization and interoperability.

“My family has a long lineage serving in various branches of the Armed Forces,” said Berry. “I am honored for the opportunity to contribute to this valuable work that helps defend our nation by joining the BIW team and advancing information technology that will improve the infrastructure and processes in support of building ships for the US Navy.” 

Bath Iron Works, which produces U.S. Navy destroyers, was founded in 1884 and is owned by General Dynamics (NYSE: GD). The 6,500 BIW employees account for 12% of Maine's manufacturing workforce.
