Elana Broitman is due to step down as the Defense Department‘s top industrial policy chief by the end of August, Defense News reported Friday.

Marcus Weisgerber cited a Pentagon official as saying the official is leaving to join her family in New York and that her successor has not been named.

“The department will ensure that the work of (Manufacturing and Industrial Base Policy) will continue through this transition,” Maureen Schumann said in an email to Defense News.

Broitman was named to her current post as principal point of contact with the defense industrial base in March.

She led agency initiatives to establish links with defense industry leaders and was part of the U.S. delegation at the recently-concluded Farnborough International Airshow.

Broitman joined DoD last year as deputy to then-industrial policy chief Brett Lambert.
