Roster

The Commerce Department last week named retired Air Force Brig. Gen. John J. Kelly director of the National Weather Service. Kelly is the former head of the Air Force Air Weather Service, which provides operational weather support for the Army and the Air Force. Kelly began work at his new job Feb. 26.

Ron Hack, director of the Office of Systems and Telecommunications Management at the Commerce Department, was selected last month as chairman of the Interagency Management Council.

The IMC, which is composed of telecommunications executives representing agencies throughout the federal government, advises the General Services Administration, the Office of Management and Budget and other organizations on how to develop policy and procurements to best meet the government's telecom requirements.

Hack replaced Frank Lalley, associate deputy assistant secretary for telecommunications at the Department of Veterans Affairs, whose one-year term had expired.

Lalley will move to a new job March 16 to serve as director of the Office of Service Delivery at GSA's Federal Technology Service. That position was previously held by Sandy Bates, who is now the deputy commissioner of FTS.

FTS commissioner Dennis Fischer last month became a member of the Government Information Technology Services Board (GITSB) and will serve on the board as champion for federal agencies as customers of federal services.

Alan Proctor, chief information officer at the Federal Trade Commission, last month began a year assignment on loan to the Treasury Department's chief information officer, Jim Flyzik. Proctor will help Flyzik, vice chairman of GITSB, to align the work of GITSB and the CIO Council.

Retired Army Col. Bobby Adams has been named director of CACI International Inc.'s Training Simulation Division in Orlando, Fla. Before retiring from the Army, Adams served with the Army Simulation, Training and Instrumentation Command and the Naval Air Warfare Center Training Systems Division.

Ken Johnson, former president and chief executive officer of Cordant Inc., began working as a consultant at Federal Sources Inc. late in January.
