By Army Talent Management Task ForceJune 18, 2021

The Army has announced Brig. Gen. Brett Funck will assume duties as the Director of the U.S. Army Talent Management Task Force (ATMTF) from Brig. Gen. Thomas Drew.

Brig. Gen Funck comes to the ATMTF from Fort Drum, N.Y., where he most recently served as the Deputy Commanding General of Operations for the 10th Mountain Division.

Brig. Gen. Thomas Drew will depart the ATMTF to take command of U.S. Army Human Resources Command. Brig. Gen. Drew served as the Deputy Director for the ATMTF since his arrival last year, then as the ATMTF Director in February 2021.

Brig. Gen. Drew oversaw several important initiatives since his arrival at the ATMTF in August. Shortly after his arrival, he helped oversee the first-ever Colonels Command Assessment Program, helped the Army better understand the talents of 319 colonels. Based on the success of this and other programs, the ATMTF created pilot programs to assess the knowledge, skills, and behaviors of senior non-commissioned officers, beginning with the Sergeants Major Assessment Program and the First Sergeant Talent Alignment Assessment.

Within the past month, the ATMTF helped the Army expand the Career Intermission Program (CIP) to eligible non-commissioned officers. CIP affords eligible Soldiers the ability to take a break in service for personal and professional reasons before resuming their Army career. Last month, an Army directive made CIP a permanent Army program.

Brig. Gen. Funck arrives at the ATMTF ready to focus on executing, implementing, and developing initiatives to ensure the Army meets the talent demands of the 21st Century.
