Tillotson officially takes the job next Tuesday, and will also serve as the department's acting deputy chief management officer, according to a memo from deputy defense secretary Bob Work, which was obtained by Federal News Radio.

Tillotson currently serves as the Air Force's deputy chief management officer and director for business transformation.

The DoD DCMO's office has been led in an interim capacity by Kevin Scheid since Beth McGrath, then the deputy chief management officer, departed for the private sector. Scheid will return to his previous post as a senior advisor to the undersecretary of defense for intelligence.
