Maj. Gen. Dwyer Dennis, formerly director of global reach programs at the U.S. Air Force headquarters, has been appointed as the service branch’s program executive officer for command, control, communications, intelligence and networks, the Defense Department said Friday.
Dennis will be based at Air Force Materiel Command in his new assignment and was previously responsible for the branch’s airlift, air refueling, training and special operations programs.
Those programs account for a budget of $5.6 billion and include the KC-46, Presidential Airlift Replacement and Combat Rescue Helicopter, according to the Air Force.
The 33-year military veteran has held the positions of program executive officer for fighters and bombers at the Air Force Life Cycle Management Center and director of AFMC’s intelligence, surveillance, reconnaissance and requirements directorate.
He is a recipient of the Air Force Commendation Medal with oak leaf cluster, Air Force Achievement Medal and Defense Superior Service Medal with oak leaf cluster, among other honors.
