Brig. Gen. (sel.) Cedric D. George has been named as the first commander of the newly-designated Air Logistics Complex, under Air Force Materiel Command's planned five-center construct, announced in November. The reorganization plan is still contingent on congressional approval.

"If I was able to hand-pick the new commander of the Warner Robins Air Logistics Complex, it would be Brig. Gen. (sel.) George," said Maj. Gen. Robert McMahon, Warner Robins Air Logistics Center commander. "His proven track record of performance and commitment to continuous process improvement makes him the perfect candidate to continue our journey of excellence at Robins."

Under the new plan, the 402nd Maintenance Wing will be redesignated as the new Air Logistics Complex.

Col. Evan Miller, the current 402nd MXW commander, has been selected for reassignment as the Deputy Director of Logistics for Air Force Materiel Command at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base, Ohio.

"Col. Miller's leadership ability and record of accomplishments speak for themselves," said McMahon. "The legacy left under his leadership has built the foundation that will help steer the future of the new Air Logistics Complex to new heights."

Also announced today, Deryl Israel, the Warner Robins Air Logistics Center executive director, will retire in May, after 35 years of service.

"It has been my absolute pleasure to share the reigns of leadership during my tenure as commander with such a fine man," said McMahon. "I am very fortunate to have had Deryl's help in leading the finest logistics center in the Department of Defense."

McMahon will also retire this summer, concurrent with the dissolution of the Warner Robins Air Logistics Center.
