REDSTONE ARSENAL, Ala. – Eleven Army Materiel Command employees are making a difference across the enterprise.

For their contributions to mission goals, ranging from expanding AMC’s data analysis capabilities and enhancing software readiness to implementing new safety plans and executing mission requirements without any incidents, these employees were named AMC’s employees of the quarter for the second quarter of fiscal year 2023.

“These AMC employees take being all you can be to the next level, making innovative contributions in support of our Soldiers and families, and contributing to a positive work environment,” said Maj. Gen. Walt Duzzny, AMC chief of staff. “They represent the best of our command, and we are proud of their accomplishments.”

Among the 11 recipients is Christopher Acreman, a logistics management specialist with the Logistics Data Analysis Center. He is a former Army warrant officer who has spent most of his career executing field and sustainment level maintenance on Army systems. He said a core component of LDAC’s mission is to provide decision support across the Army.

“It is challenging, rewarding and fulfilling, and when combined with an excellent team and organization, makes it very easy to enjoy,” he said.

AMC recognized Acreman for implementing a new business process, spearheading a technology shift from delivering business intelligence reports through LDAC’s existing development architecture to what is available in Army Vantage, the Army’s data-driven operations and decision-making platform. Selecting the right tool for the right job enabled the team to gain several efficiencies and stay on schedule.

“LDAC is filled with exceptional people providing outstanding support to the AMC and the Army 24/7,” Acreman said. “The work never stops and never slows down, so taking time to acknowledge and recognize individuals is a huge motivator.”
