The 402nd Maintenance Wing has a new deputy director.

Gregory Stanley, who was vice director of the 330th Aircraft Sustainment Wing, is taking the position. Although his official start date was Tuesday, Stanley said he won't actually be moving into his new office until Feb. 1.

Stanley, a former Marine, started working as a civilian at Robins in 1982. He has worked in numerous positions, including stints at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base, Ohio, and at the Pentagon. He is currently in his third stint at Robins, having come back in August to take his position in the 330th ASW.

Stanley said he is looking forward to the challenge of working in Robins' largest wing, which is charged with the aircraft maintenance work done here.

"It is the most visible thing that we do, and it's what the public can see and hear about," he said. "In maintenance you get to see airplanes leave and you know the results of your work. What we do here is closer to the warfighter."

Two of his focus areas will be the institutionalization of high-velocity maintenance and continuous process improvements.

A native of Michigan, one of the reasons he was glad to return to Robins is the community.

"I dare say that you could not find a better support system anywhere in the Air Force than what we have here," he said.
