Defense Logistics Agency Distribution Hill, Utah, recently welcomed Preston Kriegshauser as their new deputy director.

Kriegshauser previously served as the contracting officer representative since his arrival at the distribution center in February 2010.

Before joining DLA, he was a contractor charged with training Continuing Government Activities on all aspects of post-competition accountability throughout the DLA Distribution network.  Kriegshauser was responsible for ensuring that all Continuing Government Activities were fully aware and completely capable of executing all phases of post-competition accountability to include surveillance activities and documentation. 

For more than 20 years, Kriegshauser worked in manufacturing and distribution operations with the Wilkerson Corporation in Englewood, Colo.  He also served at Wal-Mart Distribution in Loveland, Colo., and Pottsville, Pa., where he was chosen to be a key player for the start-up of a hi-velocity mechanized grocery distribution center in northeast Pennsylvania.  During his time at the Wilkerson Corporation, he became a certified internal auditor for ISO 9000 and 9001, and trained others to become certified.

Kriegshauser received an honorable discharge from the United States Navy in 1981, after proudly serving as a flight deck director aboard the USS Saratoga.
