Rear Adm. Brian Antonio, program executive officer for the U.S. Navy’s littoral combat ships, has been assigned to the role of PEO for aircraft carriers.
The appointment by Secretary of the Navy Ray Mabus and Chief of Naval Operations Adm. John Richardson was announced Thursday.
Antonio has held his current role since September 2013.
His tour as an engineering duty officer comprised field, fleet command and headquarters assignments after he passed the qualification as a ship superintendent for USS Nassau and USS Saipan overhauls at Norfolk Naval Shipyard.
He was a PMS 378 program manager for future aircraft carriers between 2007 and 2011 and received his qualification for surface warfare onboard USS Peterson.
Antonio served as a fleet maintenance officer on the staff of the U.S. Pacific Fleet while he held the role as executive assistant and naval aide to the assistant secretary of the Navy for research, development and acquisition.
