Acquisition professionals video series debuts

By Irene Smith DLA Energy Public Affairs

The first of nine videos profiling Defense Logistics Agency acquisition professionals debuted on the organization’s YouTube and Facebook sites Feb. 24.

Over the next nine weeks, a new one to three minute video will be posted to the two sites. The first acquisition video profiles DLA Human Resources Director Brad Bunn, DLA Logistics Operations Deputy Director Mike Scott and DLA Acquisition Deputy Director Roxanne Banks sharing their personal insights in becoming successful acquisition professionals in the video titled “Big A is Critical to Mission Support.”

“The role of the acquisition professional is extremely important to the Department of Defense and unique to DLA,” Bunn said. “These videos bring our core values to life. People respond better to stories and they respond better to stories from people they can identify with and can say ‘I can do that or I am doing that.’” 

Key messages contained in the videos are the importance of training and certification needed to succeed in the acquisition career fields.

“As director of Human Resources, my job is to hire, develop and retain high performing, skilled and resilient professionals,” Bunn said. “We’re committed to enabling all levels of our acquisition workforce to hone their skills and experience, and maximize their potential. Through education, training and the right professional and leadership development, you can be successful in your current job and prepare for advancement to senior level positions.”
