Description

CBIA BizCast host Ali Warshavsky speaks with General Dynamics Electric Boat president Kevin Graney. Graney is the keynote speaker at CBIA’s Jan. 21 Economic Summit + Outlook conference.

Graney took over as president of the Groton-based submarine manufacturer in 2019. He says Electric Boat is in a period of heavy growth, driven by major U.S. Navy contracts.

That growth requires hiring thousands of skilled workers over the next few years, which Graney recognizes as a significant challenge.

“We are looking everywhere we can, we are expanding our focus area from the immediate area of Eastern Connecticut and Rhode Island to further and further out,” said Graney.

“You can't watch an NFL game without seeing an Electric Boat commercial and that's how I want it. I want people to know we are open for business.”

Graney will share further details about Electric Boat’s workforce development strategy and how the company is navigating supply chain bottlenecks at the conference, which is now virtual because of the surge in COVID-19 positivity rates.

Registration for the 2022 Economic Summit + Outlook, made possible through the generous support of Webster Bank, is free for CBIA members.
