The Combat Capabilities Development Command Aviation & Missile Center has welcomed back a familiar face to lead its workforce of more than 11,000 engineers, scientists, researchers and support staff in delivering advanced technologies as required by the Army’s strategic priorities and support to its Cross-Functional Teams.
Jeffrey Langhout assumed the duties of Aviation & Missile Center director Jan. 17. No stranger to the organization, Langout served in a variety of leadership roles at AvMC from April 2013 to October 2018, when he became the director of the Ground Vehicle Systems Center in Warren, Michigan.
Juanita Christensen, who precedes Langhout as AvMC director, has been selected as the new deputy chief of staff for logistics, facilities and environmental, G-4, at the Army Materiel Command, also effective Jan. 17.
“Both leaders have contributed significantly to the mission of DEVCOM, Army Futures Command and the Army and we are extremely appreciative of everything they have done in their current positions,” Maj. Gen. John George, DEVCOM commander, said.
