Maj. Gen. Garrett Yee, the Defense Information Systems Agency's assistant to the director, is retiring this spring, FCW has learned.
As DISA's assistant to the director, Yee is responsible for leading the agency's civilian and military personnel in planning, developing, delivering and operating joint command and control capabilities and global enterprise infrastructure that support the president, secretary of defense, Joint Chiefs of Staff, combatant commanders, and DOD components.
Yee was previously the military deputy and senior information security officer for the Army CIO/G-6 before taking on the assistant to the director role and that of DISA's senior procurement executive in 2019.
The general also received a Fed 100 award in 2015 for his work as the commanding general for the 335th Signal Command and C4I director for the Combined Joint Task Force-Operation Inherent Resolve, where he was instrumental in reviving communications infrastructure, including satellite communications terminals and other portable tools, in Iraq that facilitated U.S.-led airstrikes against the Islamic State in 2014.
His retirement ceremony and exit date is April 28, according to a DISA spokesperson. A successor has not yet been named.
