Deputy Defense Secretary Announces New Defense Business Board Members

These new board members bring with them a variety of experience and expertise in the private sector and academia.

Deputy Secretary of Defense Kathleen H. Hicks is hosting the Defense Business Board’s fourth quarter meeting for fiscal year 2022 at the Pentagon today and tomorrow.

The Defense Business Board advises the defense secretary on Defense Department management and governance. The board provides the secretary and deputy secretary with outside private sector perspectives and lessons learned on business management, culture, principles and practices not otherwise available to the secretary from within DOD.

Meetings of the DBB typically have open, public sessions and closed sessions, with numerous senior-level DOD guest speakers and opportunities for department leaders to discuss recommendations and studies the board has provided.

During this meeting, the deputy secretary will announce the appointment of 10 members to the board. These new members will support one of three advisory subcommittees — Business Transformation, Business Operations, or Talent Management, Culture and Diversity.

These new board members bring with them a variety of experience and expertise in the private sector and academia, a defense official said. They are expected to provide independent strategic-level counsel on enterprisewide business management approaches and best practices for business operations and achieving national defense goals, the official added.
