NASA has named Kevin McGhaw as its new deputy director for Marshall Space Flight Center’s Office of Strategic Analysis and Communications.
The space agency said Wednesday McGhaw will manage 160 civil service and contractor employees who perform strategic planning, communications and analysis functions at OSAC.
“Both the analysis and communications sides of OSAC work well together to communicate Marshall’s projects, capabilities and performance to many different audiences,” he said.
“That’s something I am passionate about — engaging elected officials, employees, external stakeholders and the public, while highlighting the amazing things our team is doing and plans to do.”
McGhaw previously served NASA as Marshall’s legislative affairs specialist in 2008, then he was eventually named as a deputy manager of the external affairs office and later on became its manager in 2013.
He graduated from NASA’s LASER Supervisory Development Program and Mid-Level Leadership Program as well as Marshall’s Leadership Development Series.
He is also a recipient of the NASA Exceptional Achievement Medal and Silver Achievement Medal.
