Peter Levine, deputy chief management officer at the Defense Department, has been tapped to replace Brad Carson as the DoD acting undersecretary for personnel and readiness, Military Times reported Wednesday.
Karen Jowers writes Levine will take over after Carson leaves the Pentagon on April 8.
Levine also serves as Defense Sec. Ashton Carter’s senior adviser on business transformation alongside his role as DoD deputy chief management officer, a position he was nominated for in March 2015.
Prior to joining DoD, Levine provided legal counsel to the Senate Armed Services Committee as a member of the committee staff for almost 19 years, Military Times noted.
Carson submitted his resignation in March after nearly one year in his post.
