Louis Bremer, a managing director of Cerberus Capital Management, is set to receive nomination to be assistant secretary for special operations and low intensity conflict at the Department of Defense (DoD).
His nearly two-decade industry experience includes work on national security and defense investments across the U.S. and emerging markets, the White House said Monday.
Bremer previously held leadership positions at Bain Capital, Windage Capital and Veritas Capital. He worked as an investment banker at J.P. Morgan and Morgan Stanley earlier in his career.
The private equity veteran was part of the 2007-2008 White House fellowship class under the George W. Bush administration and served on the Executive Office of the President’s Homeland Security Council, where he directed strategy and resources as well as helped craft the 2007 National Strategy for Homeland Security.
The U.S. Air Force Academy graduate spent eight years as a U.S. Navy SEAL before joining the private sector in 2002.
