Defense Logistics Agency Land and Maritime to induct three into 2018 Hall of Fame class


What: DLA Land and Maritime will induct three new Hall of Fame members with 110 years of combined service.


Who: Steve Finney held several key positions during his 40-year Tech/Quality focused career. In his final position as the Mechanical Lab chief, Finney was a strong advocate for product testing, championing many high-profile testing issues including machine gun parts that greatly enhanced the product quality of business working with DLA. His hard work and dedication helped strengthen the culture within and among the DLA Product Test Centers.  


Harvey Hodak performed as the consummate expert human resources advisor to management, colleagues, employees and labor partners, serving as an honest broker, facilitator and trusted partner throughout his 35-year career.  He served as the human resources representative during the 2005 Base Realignment and Closure (BRAC) action where he was responsible for the establishment and transfer of various functions from military departments to DLA Land and Maritime.


Stephen Rodocker, as the first director of the Strategic Acquisition Programs Directorate, both improved business processes, and significantly changed the way DLA does business. Over his 35-year career, his legacy of leadership and contributions to contracting policies, strategies and workforce development left an indelible mark on DLA Land and Maritime and the entire Agency.  


When: Thursday, May 24, at 10 a.m.


Where: The ceremony will take place inside the Defense Supply Center Columbus’ Building 20 Auditorium, followed by a reception.


How: Media interested in attending should contact the Public Affairs Office at 614-692-2328 or for additional details. RSVPs are required no later than 24 hours prior to the event due to enhanced security screening procedures and to expedite installation access on the day of the event.
