Fincantieri Marinette Marine announced Friday that Mark Vandroff will be taking over as CEO effective July 7, 2021 replacing Jan Allman who has led the Wisconsin shipyard since 2014. Dario Deste, CEO of Fincantieri Marinette Marine Group says, “Our company’s continued growth afforded us an opportunity to expand our senior leadership team and to better organize to exceed our customer’s needs. Allman has accepted a promotion and will continue to serve in her new role in the company’s Green Bay office as Senior Vice President of Public Affairs and Community Relations for Fincantieri Marinette Marine Group.” Vandroff, a retired Navy Captain, brings a wealth of naval shipbuilding experience to the team responsible for designing and building the Navy’s Constellation-class frigates. Vandroff has been with Fincantieri Marinette Marine since early 2021, where he was the senior vice president of business development. Prior to joining Fincantieri, Vandroff served as the deputy assistant to the President of the United States and senior director for defense policy on the National Security Council Staff.

I have never found anything that has made me happier than journalism. The ability to inform the public is one of the most rewarding things anyone could do. While I have had many amazing opportunities in my career, I am finally back doing what I call a passion. The ability to be my true authentic self in black and white. I am a wife, mother of seven, grandmother to four, and I enjoy reading, collecting typewriters, movies, spending time with my family and our famous game nights!
