Lisa Disbrow, formerly comptroller and assistant secretary of the U.S. Air Force for financial management, has received Senate confirmation as the service branch’s new undersecretary, the Air Force reported Tuesday.

Disbrow will also co-chair the Air Force Council and will be in charge of the Air Force’s $120 billion annual budget, the report said.

She said she would prioritize the plan to increase the number of airmen within the service branch, invest in information technology system updates and boost the budget to further support the Defense Department and the country.

“We need a wide range of skills and a diverse group of people with different ways of thinking,” Disbrow said, according to the report.

“We need to be able to modernize [IT] so it can continue to support the growing needs of the Air Force,” she added.

Disbrow spent five years as vice director of force structure, resources and assessment on the Joint Staff and served as special adviser for policy, implementation and execution at the National Security Council from 2006 to 2007.

She also worked as a senior engineer at the National Reconnaissance Office.

President Barack Obama nominated Disbrow for the post in September 2015.
