Before joining DFAS, Gaddy was the assistant for fiscal control in the Office of the Assistant Secretary of the Air Force for Financial Management and Comptroller.

Gaddy holds a bachelor's degree from Old Dominion University in Virgina and has a master's degree from Boston University. He is a certified public accountant and a certified government financial manager.
