Fairbanks Morse said Monday that McFadyen brings more than three decades of experience in the aerospace, defense and marine sectors to his new position.

He held an 11-year career at Rolls-Royce, where his previous roles included senior VP for ship intelligence, SVP for marine services in the Americas region and VP of programs for the naval marine subsidiary.

McFayden also managed programs under General Electric's marine reduction gear business.
