The Defense Department held a ceremony Monday to celebrate the addition of Michael McCord, Jessica Wright, Jamie Morin and Christine Wormuth to the agency’s senior leadership team, DoD News reported Monday.
Jim Garamone writes that Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel welcomed McCord as comptroller, Wright as undersecretary for personnel and readiness, Morin as cost assessment and program evaluation lead and Wormuth as policy chief.
“At this complicated and … dangerous time in the world, we need leaders who are steady, who are engaged, experienced, and forward-thinking,” Hagel said, according to DoD News.
McCord will oversee the agency’s financial accounts, while Wright will be responsible for workforce management across the department.
Wormuth will help the agency maintain strong partnership with U.S. allies and build relationship with potential military partners.
