Vice Adm. David Lewis Succeeds Lt. Gen. Wendy Masiello as DCMA Director

David Lewis

U.S. Navy Vice Adm. David Lewis, former commander of the Space and Naval Warfare Systems Command, has assumed leadership of the Defense Contract Management Agency.

DCMA said Wednesday Lewis succeeded Air Force Lt. Gen. Wendy Masiello, who retired after 36 years of service in the U.S. Air Force.

James MacStravic, acting defense undersecretary for acquisition, technology and logistics, led the change-of-command ceremony at Fort Lee in Prince George County, Virginia.

Lewis was nominated to serve as DCMA director and elevate to the rank of vice admiral in March.

The 38-year Navy veteran said he aims to continue the agency’s efforts to ensure the delivery of products to U.S. warfighters and train agency employees to work “smarter.”

Lewis previously served as vice commander of the Naval Sea Systems Command and a program executive officer for ships at the service branch.

His assignments ashore include time as assistant chief of staff for maintenance and engineering, commander of the Naval Surface Forces, Navy secretariat staff and NAVSEA staff.
