McCarthy will succeed Karl Schneider and oversee the Army’s budget, business transformation, acquisition modernization and energy-efficiency initiatives.

During his confirmation hearing, McCarthy said he will prioritize Army readiness and capability modernization if confirmed as under secretary.

McCarthy previously served as a staff member at the House Committee on Foreign Affairs and a member of the Army’s 75th Ranger Regiment during the Operation Enduring Freedom in Afghanistan.
