KBR government/infrastructure exec Stanski resigns

SAN FRANCISCO, March 18 (Reuters) - Bruce Stanski, an executive at KBR Inc KBR.N in charge of military support operations, has resigned after more than a decade at the U.S. engineering and construction company.

Stanski, who was president of the government and infrastructure division, resigned on March 17, effective that day, to “pursue other opportunities,” according to a filing with financial regulators on Wednesday. A KBR spokeswoman declined to comment further.

Stanski joined KBR in 1995. Before being promoted to president in 2007, he had been executive vice president of his division since September 2005 and senior vice president of government operations for a year before that.

He was also the Houston-based company's chief financial officer from June 2002 to July 2004, when it was still part of Halliburton Co HAL.N.

Stanski spoke in late 2004 at Halliburton’s annual meeting to address media scrutiny of KBR’s operations in Iraq.

Iraq remains a source of controversy for KBR. In January this year, U.S. lawmakers raised concerns about the military’s increased use of private contractors in Iraq and Afghanistan, and said KBR and other companies should be held accountable for the electrocution deaths of U.S. soldiers and other mistakes.

KBR responded at the time by saying no evidence linked the company to the electrocution of a soldier showering at his Baghdad base, and that it took exception to the allegations. (Reporting by Braden Reddall)
