Kristine DiMarco is the director, communications, at Huntington Ingalls Industries’ Technical Solutions division.
For twenty one years, Kristine DiMarco has been leading the development and execution of communications strategies for the Department of Defense (DoD) and private industry. She joined HII’s AMSEC subsidiary in 2004, as a leader for Aircraft Carrier Team One, the knowledge management (KM) program for the aircraft carrier maintenance community. Prior to her current position, she led communications for HII Technical Solutions’ Fleet Support group. She has a bachelor’s degree in communications from James Madison University.
Originally from the Washington D.C. area, Kristine spent the beginning of her career managing communications and information technology initiatives for the Office of the Secretary of Defense at the Pentagon. As primary communication and technical lead for various contracts during that time, she built three of the DoD’s first websites. After the terrorist attacks in 2001, Kristine was asked to help the U.S. Navy assess the security posture of its applications, including those at the Supervisor of Shipbuilding (SUPSHIP) in Newport News, Virginia, which is what led her to make Virginia Beach her home.
