John Campbell, a U.S. Army lieutenant general and current deputy chief of staff, has been nominated to serve as the Army’s next chief of staff.

If confirmed, the 34-year military veteran would succeed Gen. Lloyd Austin, nominated in December 2012 as head of Central Command, the Defense Department said Monday.

Campbell would also be promoted to the rank of four-star general, the Pentagon said.

Army Times reports the Senate Armed Services Committee will hold a confirmation hearing on Austin’s nomination Friday.

Campbell became Army G-3 operations officer in September 2011 after two years as commanding general of the 101st Airborne Division, where he deployed the division and assumed command of a combined joint task force serving in Afghanistan.
