Changing of the guard at Army IT commands

Gen. John Morrison

The Army Network Enterprise Technology Command at Fort Huachuca, Ariz., has a new man at the helm: Brig. Gen. John B. Morrison, Jr., who most recently served as commanding general of the 7th Signal Command at Fort Gordon, Ga.

Morrison, who also formerly headed up the Army's LandWarNet/Battle Command and is a 2012 FCW Federal 100 winner, replaces interim commander Brig. Gen. Peter Gallagher. Gallagher stepped in when former commander Maj. Gen. Alan Lynn was named vice director of the Defense Information Systems Agency in September.

Morrison is set to be succeeded at Fort Gordon by Brig. Gen. John Baker, currently director of the J-6 at U.S. Central Command, MacDill Air Force Base, Fla.
