Mike Scott, deputy director of logistics operations at the Defense Logistics Agency, has been promoted to the position of vice director.
Scott will oversee DLA's operational execution, resource management and strategic planning functions, the agency said Thursday.
He will also be responsible for aligning the agency's priorities and initiatives, as well as lead governance, policy management, logistics reform and audit advancement efforts.
“Mike is extraordinarily well qualified and ready to assume this critical leadership position, having served 33 years here at DLA in a variety of positions,” Darrell Williams told senior leaders in a letter.
Scott previously served as deputy commander of the agency's energy unit and began his career at the Defense Supply Center Columbus.
He completed the Harvard University Kennedy School of Government Executive Leadership Series program and graduated from the U.S. Air Force's Air War College.
