Title: Commander, 24th Air Force; Commander, Air Forces Cyber; and Commander, Joint Force Headquarters-Cyber
Agency: Joint Base San Antonio-Lackland, Texas

AFCYBER’s IT general. The military is now deep enough into the Digital Age that a flag officer could have risen through the ranks with an IT emphasis at every step.

As the Air Force’s top cyber leader, he drove several critical initiatives in 2018, including the AFCYBER Insider Threat Program, the 33rd Network Warfare Squadron’s embrace of agile defensive cyberspace operations, and a series of groundbreaking cyber hunt missions across the U.S. military’s logistics and airpower bases in South Korea.
