Distribution’s Merrill presented commander’s coin

By Brianne M. Bender DLA Distribution Command Affairs

Business Development’s Matt Merrill received a commander’s coin during DLA Distribution Commanding Officer Navy Rear Adm. Kevin M. Jones’ employee recognition event March 27.

As the F-35 lead action officer for Distribution, Merrill assisted in the coordination of all F-35 efforts with multiple stakeholders such as Joint Program Office, Primes (Lockheed Martin and Pratt and Whitney), U.S. TRANSCOM and foreign partners.  

Additionally, Merrill orchestrated internal F-35 efforts to ensure tracking of upcoming key milestones and developed products to support F-35 efforts – such as talking papers, PowerPoint briefings and face-to-face meeting agendas.

“Matt is hard-charging, resourceful and has a tremendous ability to collaborate effectively across this complex stakeholder community,” said Business Development Director Joe Faris.
