Will oversee integration of new services
Fairbanks Morse Defense (FMD) promoted Jamie McMullin to president of Services. McMullin will oversee the integration of new services offered by the defense contractor’s recently acquired companies throughout the company’s service network, as well as the deployment of technology to enhance monitoring and maintenance capabilities that help extend asset lifecycles and reduce through-life costs.
In his previous role as vice president of Business Development and Strategy, McMullin was a key player in acquiring seven companies over the past two years and opening new service and training centers. He also oversaw the success of FM Onboard, a proprietary mixed reality technology that offers 24/7 live remote technical support and the ability to access 3D visualizations of ship assets.
McMullin will now focus on integrating the defense contractor’s new services and technology throughout a network that includes six strategically located service centers and approximately 150 field technicians – one of the largest field service crews in the nation. He will also work with FMD to continually expand the company’s offerings in areas such as obsolescence, emissions, and reducing through-life costs.
“Jamie is truly defining what it means for FMD to be a defense contractor of the first rank. He understands the finely tuned balance between service costs and speed of delivery and has already made a huge impact in our ability to provide turnkey service solutions,” said George Whittier, FMD CEO. “I am confident in Jamie’s ability to continue adding and integrating new service solutions that will serve our core customers as they maintain or expand current marine defense programs and launch new ones.”
Before joining FMD in 2021, McMullin served as the senior director of Naval Power Systems for Leonardo DRS, a defense contractor specializing in naval power and propulsion systems, transportation and logistics systems, and platform integration expertise. McMullin also spent nearly two decades with Rolls-Royce, ending his tenure as vice president of naval campaigns and business development.
