JOINT BASE SAN ANTONIO – FORT SAM HOUSTON, Texas -- With a global footprint encompassing 97 installations, 55,000 professionals and an $11 billion annual budget, the U.S. Army Installation Management Command touches every Soldier’s life each day.
In ways big and small, IMCOM helps them all, from assisting new parents who need child care to supporting a newly bereaved spouse.
The command’s motto, “We are the Army’s home,” rings true during this season of rotating assignments, with some IMCOM leaders leaving to retire and others arriving to begin new opportunities.
Lt. Gen. Doug Gabram, commanding general, U.S. Army Installation Management Command, said the turnover in general officers and senior executive service officers continues the command’s objectives of empowered and engaged leaders.
“IMCOM professionals interact daily with Soldiers and Families, a civilian workforce, Army leaders,
Congress and the American people to keep at the forefront the Army’s number one priority, its people,” Gabram said. “Within the structure of the IMCOM service culture, our newest leaders join our existing team, serving each individual with the highest standards of professionalism, dignity and respect.”
The service culture pledge states the employee’s commitment to providing programs and services delivered with a sense of individual pride, professionalism and in keeping with the spirit of Army values and IMCOM principles.
Brig. Gen. Omuso D. George
In a retirement ceremony July 16 at Fort Sam Houston, Gabram called Brig. Gen. Omuso George, who led IMCOM’s G8, a great Soldier, thinker, leader and teammate.
The G8 team works together to manage IMCOM’s $11 billion annual budget, money that is distributed across hundreds of accounts in multiple countries.
“He is a multi-talented, reliable, and effective leader and communicator who proved he could succeed at any job you give him,” Gabram said.
“The Army is about people, and from the beginning ‘Mus’ was the kind of leader who made the people around him better,” Gabram said. “We are planning for and spending our money more wisely now than in any time in our history. Mus has applied leadership consistently and on point, and his team of professionals has positioned IMCOM well to withstand the budget constraints of the future.”
Over a 30-year career, George served in a variety of U.S. command and key staff assignments, including tours in Texas, Kansas, South Carolina, Pennsylvania, the Pentagon and New York. He also served in multiple overseas assignments in Germany, South Korea, Iraq, Afghanistan and Kuwait. As IMCOM G8 director, George was the primary advisor on resource management matters.
