Navy Vice Adm. Mathias Winter, formerly deputy program executive officer for the Defense Department‘s F-35 joint program office, has officially assumed the F-35 JPO chief post, The Hill reported Thursday.

Winter succeeded Air Force Lt. Gen. Christopher Bogdan, who is set to retire in June after he led the office for nearly five years, during a ceremony held Thursday at Fort Myer in Virginia.

Winter said he plans to “provide timely continuous communications, make prudent transparent decisions, and deliver on our commitments through crisp, accountable execution” as his office moves to follow-on development and full-rate production phases for the Lockheed Martin-built F-35 fighter jet.

He assumed the position two months after he was nominated as the next F-35 JPO chief.

Winter previously served as chief of naval research, assistant commander for test and evaluation at the Naval Air Systems Command, program executive officer for unmanned aviation and strike weapons and director of innovation technology requirements, test and evaluation.
