By Robert J. Butner, Strategic Communications, Project Director Enterprise Services

On June 17, 2016, Sergio Alvarez was named Product Lead (PL) for Enterprise Content Collaboration and Messaging (EC2M) during a ceremony held at Fort Belvoir, Virginia. The ceremony was hosted by Thomas Neff, Project Director for Enterprise Services (PD ES). Mr. Alvarez received the charter from outgoing PL John Howell.

"Sergio, today we welcome you into the family of PMs. I have been lucky enough to have known you and your wife for over a decade. You are part of that ever expanding list of PM J-AIT alumni that have gone on to running EIS programs. Who could ever have guessed that program was going to turn out to be an incredible incubator for future PMs,” Mr. Neff remarked during the ceremony.

As head of EC2M, Mr. Alvarez will manage a team of over 100 government and contractor personnel acquiring, fielding and performing life cycle sustainment of technology and services for some of the highest priority Army Chief Information Officer Enterprise technology projects and initiatives including Army Knowledge Online (AKO), DoD Enterprise Email (DEE), DoD Enterprise Portal Service (DEPS), and Unified Capabilities (UC).

“I am humbled to have been given the opportunity to lead what I believe is one of the best organizations in the PEO. My predecessor built an exceptional team and I look forward to working with everyone as we continue to support the Army,” said Mr. Alvarez.

Formerly the EC2M Deputy, Alvarez was instrumental in the fusion of the separate legacy project teams of Army Knowledge Online (AKO), Defense Enterprise Email (DEE) and Unified Communications (UC) during the formation of EC2M. Mr. Alvarez has held many other leadership positions throughout the PEO EIS portfolio of programs, as well as serving six years active duty as a U.S. Marine. He was joined at the ceremony by his wife, Sandy, and their three children.
