Alan Lewis to Retire as Defense Spectrum Org Director

Alan Lewis

Alan Lewis, director of the Defense Information Systems Agency‘s Defense Spectrum Organization, is due to retire on Thursday after more than 38 years of federal service.

DISA said Tuesday it will host a retirement ceremony for the 11-year agency veteran at Fort George G. Meade in Maryland.

Lewis has led the organization that supports the Defense Department in efforts to develop spectrum management policies and technology standards.

“It makes sense to have a joint organization that is providing capability that everyone needs rather than having multiple organizations doing it redundantly,” he said about DISA.

“I would not have done anything differently in my career in terms of DISA because I believe so strongly in what we do and how critical it is, and for me, that’s been my fulfillment.”

Lewis joined the agency in 1991 while serving as a U.S. Navy officer. He also served short-term stints in the private sector and then rejoined the federal government in 2005.
