By Beth Reece

Brad Bunn has been selected as the next Defense Logistics Agency vice director. He has served as the director of DLA Human Resources since 2009 and will replace Mike Scott, who will retire at the end of February.

Bunn is well-suited for the role and has managed major programs and enterprise transformations at DLA and the Defense Department, DLA Director Navy Vice Adm. Michelle Skubic said in a message to senior leaders announcing the selection.

“Throughout his DLA tenure, Brad has acquired a keen understanding of the DLA mission, logistics, business and financial operations, enabling him to contribute significantly to the senior leadership team’s shaping and guiding of the agency’s strategy and operations,” she said.

Bunn has been a member of the senior executive service since November 2003. His contributions to DLA include overseeing the agency’s management of civilian workforce furloughs in 2013, response to Office of Personnel Management data breaches in 2015, and the myriad challenges brought about by the coronavirus pandemic. He previously served as the program executive officer for the National Security Personnel System and led the design, development and implementation of NSPS throughout the department.

“I could not be more humbled and honored to be selected for this critical leadership position,” Bunn said, adding that DLA does amazing things for warfighters and the nation every day.

“I’ve been extremely proud to lead an outstanding group of professionals in DLA Human Resources for the last 11 years. To have an opportunity to make a broader impact on the agency and our partners, as well as work for an exceptional leader like Vice Adm. Skubic, is exciting and one that I could not pass up,” he continued.

As vice director, Bunn will provide continuity of leadership and oversight to all elements of DLA including strategic planning, operations and resource management.
