President Donald Trump has announced his intent to nominate John Vonglis, a senior adviser at private equity firm Cross Range Capital, to serve as Energy Department chief financial officer.
From 2002 to 2009, Vonglis worked at the Defense Department in roles such as director of management initiatives and principal deputy and acting assistant secretary for financial management and comptroller, the White House said Wednesday.
He was also the first chief management officer of the U.S. Air Force.
Vonglis currently holds the rank of U.S. Army Reserve colonel and offers advice to the Army Cyber Institute in West Point, New York.
He received Air Force awards for exceptional and meritorious service as well as federal civilian-level accolades.
