President Donald Trump has nominated Charles Williams, a more than 32-year U.S. Navy veteran and president of St. Louis-based company Commercial Realty, to be the service branch’s assistant secretary for installations, energy and the environment.

The retired Navy rear admiral also has a four-decade real estate industry experience that encompassed property management, development, brokerage and investment, the White House said Nov. 25.

He previously served as a vice president and partner at Colliers Turley Martin, where he worked for nearly 17 years.

His naval career included diverse assignments within the continental U.S. and overseas, as well as participation in multiple exercises with joint U.S. and foreign troops.

Williams holds a bachelor’s degree in business from Southeast Missouri State University and an MBA from St. Louis University, where he later worked as an adjunct professor.
