WASHINGTON-- July 2, 2008. Lt. Gen. Jeffrey A. Sorenson, the Army's Chief Information Officer/G-6, announced today that Mike Krieger starts July 8 as his new Deputy. Krieger most recently served as the Principal Director for the Deputy DoD Chief Information Officer (CIO).

"Mr. Krieger will immediately engage in the Army's acceleration to a global plug-and-play network capability," said Sorenson. "He will also be key to our Soldiers and mission partners achieving the information advantage needed in today's conflicts."

The CIO/G-6 provides architecture, governance, portfolio management, strategy, C4IT acquisition oversight and operational capabilities to enable joint expeditionary net-centric information dominance for the Army.

As the Deputy CIO/G-6, Krieger will run the day-to-day operations for the Office of the CIO/G-6 and provide senior-level advice to Sorenson.

Krieger formerly held the position of Director for Information Policy and Integration in the DoD CIO Office. He also served in the U.S. Army for twenty-five years with operational assignments in communications, and command and control.

Krieger succeeds Vernon M. Bettencourt, Jr., who left the position in June 2008.
