Vice Adm. Jan Tighe, commander of the U.S. Navy 10th Fleet and Fleet Cyber Command, will be nominated to replace Vice Adm. Ted Branch as the deputy chief naval officer for information warfare, USNI News reported Friday.
Sam LaGrone writes Tighe will succeed Rear Adm. Elizabeth Train, whose nomination to succeed Branch has been withdrawn by the Navy.
USNI News reports Train, National Maritime Intelligence Integration Office head and Office of Naval Intelligence commander, will likely retire from the military.
The Defense Department has announced Rear Adm. Robert Sharp as Train’s successor at ONI and the NMIO.
Tighe assumed her current role in April 2014 after service in Fleet Air Reconnaissance Squadron One, naval information warfare activity and Naval Security Group activities in Florida, Virginia and Japan.
She has also served in roles at organizations such as Headquarters of the Pacific Fleet, Naval Security Group, Naval Network Warfare Command and U.S. Cyber Command.
