U.S. Navy Vice Adm. Thomas Moore, former program executive officer for aircraft carriers, took on the role of chief of the Naval Sea Systems Command during a ceremony held Friday at the Washington Naval Yard.

The Navy reported Friday Moore succeeds Vice Adm. William Hilarides, who has retired after a 39-year military career.

President Barack Obama nominated Moore, then a rear admiral, as NAVSEA commander in May with a designation for a promotion in rank.

Moore, a 35-year Navy veteran, was former director of fleet readiness before he assumed the role of PEO for aircraft carriers in 2011.

He also served as major program manager for in-service aircraft carriers and overhaul project officer for aircraft carriers USS Nimitz (CVN 68), USS Enterprise (CVN 65) and USS Theodore Roosevelt (CVN 71).

NAVSEA has a workforce of approximately 70,000 military and civilian staff and is responsible for the design, construction, procurement and maintenance of the service branch’s ships, submarines and weapons systems.
