The Navy's cyber command will welcome a new leader as it approaches its one-year anniversary since declaring full operational capability.
Rear Adm. Michael Rogers has been nominated to take over as commander of Fleet Cyber Command, the Pentagon announced Wednesday. With Senate approval, he will also be promoted to Vice Admiral.
Rogers currently serves as intelligence director for the Joint Chiefs of Staff. He has been working in the information warfare field since 1987 and served in several intelligence and information operations positions prior to his current tour, according to his official Navy biography.
Rogers will replace Vice Adm. Barry McCullough, who was first appointed in December 2009 to create the Navy's first cyber command. McCullough will retire on Oct. 1, a Navy spokesman said.
Last month, the command announced a new deputy commander, Rear Adm. Matthew Kohler.
Fleet Cyber Command, also known as 10th Fleet, is the Navy component of U.S. Cyber Command. Both are headquartered at Fort Meade, Md.
