Fanning was named U.S. Air Force undersecretary in April 2013 and he served as acting secretary of the service prior to the appointment of Deborah Lee James later that year, according to the report.

He served as deputy undersecretary of the U.S. Navy and its deputy chief management officer between 2009 and 2013.
