Croom to step down

Lt. Gen. Charles Croom (USAF), the director of the Defense Information Systems Agency, will retire in July. President Bush has nominated DISA's current vice director, Navy Rear Adm. Elizabeth Hight, to succceed him.

Croom has been director of DISA since July 2005; his mission at the agency has been to improve its agility and the quality of the technology and services it provides, often by adopting practices and technologies from the private sector.

Hight was the Navy's director of net-centric warfare before joining DISA in 2005. She has been in the Navy since 1977, serving first at the Naval Communications Area Master Station Western Pacific in Guam.
