Croom takes reins at DISA

A new director took the helm of the Defense Information Systems Agency after a ceremony Friday at Bolling Air Force Base in Washington.

Air Force Lt. Gen. Charles E. Croom Jr., former director of information, services and integration for the service's Office of Warfighting Integration and CIO, also became the new head of the Joint Task Force for Global Network Operations.

Croom replaces Lt. Gen. Harry D. Raduege Jr., who served as director of DISA for five years and retired from the Air Force after 35 years of service.

Croom takes over the management of DISA at a time when the agency is expanding bandwidth at roughly 100 military installations and moving to consolidate nine core services, such as messaging, discovery, security and collaboration.

JTF-GNO is responsible for operating and defending the Global Information Grid, the Defense Department's classified and unclassified network.
