He previously held leadership roles at Beechcraft‘s global mission support, special mission aircraft and government and defense businesses.

Gibson first joined DoD in 2006 as deputy undersecretary for management reform and helped identify methods for the department to manage defense programs.

He also managed the U.S. Air Force‘s annual budget as assistant secretary of financial management.
