Tidal McCoy, a more than four-decade public and private sector veteran, and former NASA Chief Financial Officer Jeff DeWit will be appointed to serve on the Defense Science Board.

Acting Defense Secretary Chris Miller selected both McCoy and DeWit as potential DSB members to advise the Department of Defense on science, technology, acquisition and manufacturing matters, the Pentagon said Friday.

McCoy is chairman and co-founder of IronGate Capital Advisors. His industry career also included time as chairman and CEO of Washington Capital Partners, an investment company he also established, and vice president of government relations for Thiokol Propulsion.

He also served as assistant secretary for manpower and reserve affairs at the U.S. Air Force and as the branch's senior assistant secretary under the Reagan administration.

DeWit received Senate confirmation for the NASA CFO role in March 2018 and held the position until February of this year. He came to the space agency after service as treasurer for the state of Arizona.

He began his financial career at Smith Barney in 1992 and later founded ECHOtrade, which he led as CEO for 14 years.
