President Bush has nominated Michael W. Wynne to be Air Force secretary and Donald C. Winter to be Navy secretary.

Wynne, currently acting undersecretary of Defense for acquisition, technology and logistics, would replace Preston M. 'Pete' Geren, who has served as acting secretary of the Air Force since July 29.

Wynne formerly worked as principal deputy undersecretary of Defense for acquisition, technology and logistics. Before that, he served as chairman and CEO of Ixata and as chairman of Extended Reach Logistics.

At the Navy, Winter would replace Gordon England, who was named deputy secretary of Defense earlier this year.

He is corporate vice president and president of Northrop Grumman Mission Systems, and previously was president and CEO of TRW Systems. He was awarded the Secretary of Defense Medal for meritorious civilian service while working for the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency.

William F. Reiske, former commander of the Joint Transformation Command for Intelligence, has moved to the private sector as director of strategic programs at Tenix America of McLean, Va.

Reiske worked in intelligence, operations and management in the federal government for more than 15 years.

Navy Capt. Susan M. Chiaravalle replaced Reiske as commander of JTC-I.

Lt. Gen. John 'Jack' Hudson has taken over as commander of the largest acquisition organization in the Air Force Materiel Command.

Hudson leads the Aeronautical Systems Center at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base in Ohio. He replaced Gen. William Looney, who took command of the Air Education and Training Command in June.

Hudson previously served as assistant deputy undersecretary of the Air Force for international affairs and senior military assistant to the undersecretary of Defense for acquisition and technology.
