Doug Haskin Named Product Lead Computer Hardware, Enterprise Software and Solutions


Doug Haskin has been named Product Lead (PL) Computer Hardware Enterprise Software and Solutions (CHESS). Haskin officially accepted his new role in an Assumption of Charter Ceremony at Fort Belvoir on Friday July 15, 2016.

“These last few months have been nothing but constant change for the Enterprise Services. We said goodbye to a couple of PLs and welcomed a few others. For Doug things are a little different, he’s a plank owner at ES. In many ways, his efforts at ES are the foundation of a great organization he helped build, so I feel like he is uniquely prepared to lead CHESS. Doug, I wish you the best of luck. I’m sure after several years, you’ll be ready to move on to Senior Service College and that next step towards executive leadership, Godspeed,” said Project Director, Enterprise Services (PD ES) Thomas Neff, who presided over the ceremony.

In his new role, Haskin leads CHESS in providing architecturally sound standards and policy-compliant IT Enterprise solutions from more than 50 prime industry IT providers to all Army activities and organizations.

“I’ve been deputy for about six years, so I knew the day would come when I would have to leave my comfort zone and step into a Product Lead role. I’m honored that Mr. Neff selected me to lead the organization that he led a couple of months ago. I’m humbled by the task before me as I take the lead for CHESS. To my new team members, I’m looking forward to getting to know all of you and working with you to sustain this high-performing organization,” said Haskin.

Prior to becoming PL at CHESS, Haskin served as the first Deputy of PD ES, where he helped manage the Project Office responsible for acquiring, fielding, and performing lifecycle sustainment of technology and services supporting many of the Army Chief Information Officer’s (CIO/G-6) largest enterprise initiatives. Haskin graduated from the United States Military Academy with a Bachelor of Science degree in Computer Science in May 1998 and completed a Master of Science degree in Program Management from the Naval Postgraduate School in June 2010. Haskin holds Level 3 DAWIA certifications in Life Cycle Logistics and Program Management.
