Redstone Arsenal, Ala., - Maj. Gen. Jim Rogers, AMCOM Commanding General, announced here Monday that Lisha Adams, Senior Executive Service Director of AMCOM's Integrated Materiel Management Center, will be moving to the Army Materiel Command's G-4 (Logistics) Deputy Director position Sunday June 5, 2011.
Additionally, Keith Roberson, the Command's current G-3 (Operations) Director, has been named to succeed Adams.
Secretary of Defense Robert Gates directed on March 14, 2011, the phase out of a number of Senior Executive Service positions, one of which was that of the G-3 (Operations) Director.
"Actually, we will now have Aviation and Missile Materiel Enterprise expertise at AMC's Senior Staff level," Rogers said. "We don't want Lisha to leave, but this is a win-win situation. We are not losing, but rather gaining in the bigger sense."
The IMMC's 2,100 employees develop, acquire, field and sustain logistics support for the Army Aviation and Missile systems and associated support equipment to ensure the Army's weapon system readiness in any operation worldwide. The IMMC, in support of Program Executive Offices/Project Managers, Army Depots, and partnering with Industry; are dedicated to providing real time logistics support to the Soldier, Airman, and Marine in training and in combat.
AMCOM G-3 (Operations) has more than 1,600 employees and a worldwide mission of supporting aviation and missile readiness for the Soldier. The G-3's importance in supporting the war fighter is widely acknowledged throughout the Army.
Larry Gunter has been named to succeed Roberson as G-3 Director.
Adams and her husband, Tony, who recently retired, have a 14-year-old daughter, Bridget, who is a freshman at Grissom High School. She also has a stepson, Bradley and stepdaughter-in-law, Lisa.
Roberson, a 29-year veteran, is the father of Emily, 23 and Jordan, 17. Before joining AMCOM, he served as Utility Helicopters Deputy Project Manager, in the Program Executive Office, Aviation. He took over as the command's G-3 Executive Director in March, 2010.
