'Idea guy' earns Troop Support Supervisor of the Quarter

By DLA Troop Support Public Affairs

Dave Lipshutz earned the Defense Logistics Agency Troop Support’s Supervisor of the 4th Quarter after his section completed the most manual awards in nine of the past 12 months in the Industrial Hardware supply chain.

Lipshutz is an integrated supply team chief in one of IH’s traditional acquisition pre-award divisions and supervises 19 pre-award buyers, including acquisition specialists, purchasing agents, Pathways to Career Excellence program participants and student interns.

“Dave is our idea guy,” according to his award narrative. Innovation is one of his strengths and IH management constantly looks to Lipshutz for solutions, opinions and ideas on how to address difficult acquisition situations.
