U.S. Army Major General Alan R. Lynn (above) is set to replace Lt Gen Ronnie D. Hawkins Jr. as director of DISA.

Army Maj. Gen. Alan Lynn will succeed Lt. Gen. Ronnie Hawkins as head of the Defense Information Systems Agency sometime this summer, DISA officials said June 16.

Lynn is currently vice director of the Pentagon’s IT infrastructure agency. Hawkins announced in January that he would retire.

Lynn has been DISA’s vice director since September 2013, prior to which he was commanding general of the Army's Network Enterprise Technology Command at Fort Huachuca, Ariz. He has also served as DISA’s chief of staff and as head of the Army Signal Center of Excellence.
