Air Force Materiel Command Public Affairs


6/25/2013 - WRIGHT-PATTERSON AIR FORCE BASE, Ohio  -- Michael Gill begins his tenure as Air Force Materiel Command's new executive director June 28 with the long-term objective of providing the right mix of support and leadership to benefit the command and the Air Force.

"I am truly honored to have this opportunity," Gill said. "I look forward to the successes and challenges we will have taking the command -- and the Air Force -- to that next level of excellence this country expects and deserves."

As the command's executive director, Gill advises the AFMC commander in managing all aspects of the command's mission to deliver war-winning capabilities, aircraft and weapon systems to America's warfighters. He also advises the AFMC commander on labor union relations and development of the civilian work force.

The top goal, said Gill, is supporting AFMC Commander Gen. Janet Wolfenbarger and, by extension, the priorities of the command. Hand-in-hand with this focus area is tackling the effects felt by a constrained fiscal environment marked by sequestration and workforce furloughs.

"Helping to ensure we continue to provide vital support to our customers and warfighters will be at the forefront of all our efforts," Gill said. "The other part of that challenge will be taking care of our people as we move forward. Sequestration and furloughs will create a great deal of stress on our workforce and it will be important for us to help them weather the storm by being good wingmen."

Throughout his career and life, Gill said he has applied the Air Force's core values as a guide to conducting all aspects of business.

"I have learned that if you keep these core values in mind -- integrity, service, excellence -- they become a true guide both in your professional and personal life," he said.

Gill entered government service with the Air Force in 1982 under the Mid-level Management Development Program at Robins Air Force Base, Ga., where he served as a contracting officer and contracts manager supporting multiple aircraft and weapon systems.

His succeeding assignments have included varying positions throughout the Air Force. Gill served as the program manager for the Air Force Contracting and Manufacturing Civilian Career Program, Randolph AFB, Texas; as the director of the TRICARE Regional Office South, Office of the Assistant Secretary of Defense for Health Affairs, San Antonio, Texas; as the director of Contracting, Headquarters Air Force Materiel Command, Wright-Patterson AFB, Ohio; and, as the executive director of the Ogden Air Logistics Center, Hill AFB, Utah.

Prior to his current assignment, he was executive director of the Air Force Life Cycle Management Center at Wright-Patterson. Gill entered the Senior Executive Service in 2001.

This combination of professional experiences, Gill said, has prepared him for the challenges that await in his new assignment as executive director.

"I have had some great experiences in my career," he said. "Each of them has provided me with lessons and growth opportunities -- both personally and professionally."
