DISA shakeup moves three managers into new posts

Three senior managers at the Defense Information Systems Agency have taken new job positions as a result of an agency restructuring.

Tony Montemarano, the former principal director for network services at DISA, is the new program director for the Global Information Grid-Bandwidth Expansion initiative, the agency announced last week. The GIG-BE project is designed to increase the capabilities of the Defense Information System Network by building a worldwide, ground-based network with 10-Gbps OC-192 connections.

The network will serve 92 Defense sites initially and eventually will be connected throughout DOD, officials said.

Air Force Brig. Gen. Steve Lanning has replaced Montemarano as the principal director for network services. He will work alongside Montemarano in implementing the GIG-BE program.

Also, Dawn Meyerriecks, DISA's chief technology officer, has been tapped to lead DISA's new Net-Centric Enterprise Services initiative, in addition to retaining her position as CTO. As director of NCES, Meyerriecks will 'develop and field capabilities that will change the way warfighters receive and process information today,' according to a DISA statement.
