PEO EIS Programs

PEO Perspective August 2017

As summer draws to a close, the Army and PEO EIS recognize Antiterrorism Awareness Month and Women’s Equality Day, and share with you some of the changes across PEO EIS leadership. August is Antiterrorism Awareness Month, an Army-wide campaign, which seeks to educate Soldiers, Family members and Retirees about the importance of situational awareness. We are in a heightened state of awareness and vigilance on military installations and at military facilities following recent events, both domestic and abroad. I urge everyone to remain vigilant, report suspicious activities and look out for your fellow teammates and colleagues. If you See Something, Say Something. The Army iWATCH page has good information and videos, with tips for safety.

On Aug. 26, 1920, after a protracted and brave battle to break down barriers to equality, American women won the right to vote. This month, PEO EIS celebrates Women’s Equality Day, commemorating the 97th anniversary of the passage of the 19th Amendment to the Constitution guaranteeing women the right to vote, by featuring some of our women leaders in Workforce Spotlights.

In the Army and at PEO EIS, we are committed to the fundamental rights of all Americans and to all those who serve. Women have vital roles in today’s Army, as leaders, Soldiers, Army Civilians and family members – all of which are critical to the success of our Army team. The nation is indebted to our women in service, who continue to break barriers and serve our country with honor.

This summer, PEO EIS has been busy transitioning the leadership of many of our program offices. To those transitioning out of PEO EIS, I thank you for your leadership, service and commitment to the mission and your dedicated support of the team. I also want to extend a hearty welcome to our new program leadership.

In June, we said farewell to COL Joel Babbitt, former WESS, and welcomed LTC Anthony Whitfield. PM IPPS-A also stood up IPPS-A Increment II Sensitive Activities, which is led by Kevin Curry, former Project Lead SCES. AcqBusiness and LMP also saw a change in leadership – my heartfelt thanks to both LTC Keith Harley and LTC Rob Williams for their hard work and success, and welcome (back) to Ms. Lareina Adams, AcqBusiness, and LTC Michael Parent, who has taken the helm at LMP. Finally, GFEBS held an Assumption of Charter in June recognizing Daniel Kitts, the new Product Director GFEBS Development and Modernization (DEV MOD).

In July, we welcomed Danny Mahan as the new Product Director GCSS-Army Aviation Logistics at a ceremony in Huntsville, where the product office is headquartered.

This month, we close the busy change of charter season with new leadership at DCATS, AESIP, ALTESS and I3C2. Thank you to COL Charlie Stein, COL Harry Culclasure, Mr. Michael Padden and LTC Toy Frasier for your dedication and leadership in your time with PEO EIS – we are indebted to your service. The accomplishments that you achieved in your time here are part of PEO EIS’s enduring success story, and I am very proud to have served with you. We welcome back COL RJ Mikesh as PM AESIP, COL Enrique Costas, who will lead DCATS, COL Chad Harris, who takes the lead for I3C2 August 31, and extend a welcome aboard to Mr. Timonthy Hale, Product Director ALTESS.

As if that’s not enough, we also participated in an AUSA Hot Topics panel July 20 in Arlington focusing on Army Networks, and we’re gearing up for AFCEA TechNet in Augusta, Georgia, August 8-10, where PEO EIS Chief of Staff COL Kevin Stoddard and CIO Mr. Manish Patel will both speak on panels. We hope to see you there!

As always, we would love to hear from you – please feel free to submit white papers, questions or comments through the submission button on the home page of our website.

We have a great many plans and engagements coming up in the fall – including AUSA – so stay tuned to this space for more information, and thank you for your continued support to PEO EIS and the Army!
