U.S. Army Maj. Gen. Darrell Williams, commanding general of the Army Combined Arms Support Command and Sustainment Center of Excellence at Fort Lee, will take over as director of the Defense Logistics Agency at Fort Belvoir.
DLA said Tuesday the Senate confirmed Williams’ new assignment as well as promotion to the rank of lieutenant general as he succeeds U.S. Air Force Lt. Gen. Andy Busch, who will retire May 4.
The new DLA director returns to the agency where he served as commander of the land and maritime group based in Ohio from September 2010 to July 2012.
He has also held assignments as deputy chief of staff for Army Materiel Command at Redstone Arsenal, director of logistics for engineering and security assistance at the U.S. Pacific Command headquarters, executive officer to the Army deputy chief of staff and deputy commander of the Coalition Forces Land Component Command at Camp Arifjan in Kuwait.
Williams has master’s degrees from the National Defense University, Army Command and General Staff College and Pennsylvania State University.
