Bush Taps Krieg for Defense under secretary position: American forces press service.
Krieg is currently director for program analysis and evaluation in the Office of the Secretary of Defense. In that position, he's been a proponent of DoD's transformation efforts, which, Krieg said, involves reshaping the department to address 21st-century challenges such as terrorism and to prepare for how war will likely be fought decades from now.
PA & E's role in transformation is "to push at the system, push at the Services, push at the combatant commanders" in order to effect necessary department-wide change, he said in a recent interview for the Pentagon Channel documentary "Facing the Future."
In the private sector, Krieg was vice president and general manager of International Paper in Purchase, N. Y., and Memphis, Tenn.
Earlier in his career, he served as executive assistant to the deputy secretary in the Office of the Secretary of Defense. He earned his bachelor's degree from Davidson College and his master's degree from Harvard University's Kennedy School of Government.
