HILL AIR FORCE BASE, Utah -- Secretary of Defense Robert M. Gates announced May 8 that the president has nominated Maj. Gen. Kevin J. Sullivan, commander of the Ogden Air Logistics Center for promotion to the rank of lieutenant general with an assignment to become the Deputy Chief of Staff, Installations, Logistics, and Mission Support, at Headquarters U.S. Air Force, Pentagon, Washington, D.C.

Sullivan will require U.S. Senate confirmation for the promotion. Once confirmed, he will succeed retiring Lt. Gen. Donald J. General Wetekam. No date has been set for the promotion or new reporting date to the Pentagon.

Sullivan has been commander of the Ogden ALC since July 2003. The ALC is located on Hill AFB, the largest single site employer in Utah with more than 23,000 people and local economic impact amounting to more than $3 billion annually. The ALC's mission includes depot maintenance, purchasing and supply chain management, weapons system management, and readiness.


As deputy chief of staff for installations, logistics and mission support, Sullivan will be responsible to the Air Force chief of staff for leadership, management, and integration of Air Force installation support and all the logistics elements associated with aircraft and missile supply and maintenance activities, as well as setting policy and preparing budget estimates that reflect enhancements to productivity, combat readiness, and quality of life for Air Force people.
