The Association of the U.S. Army’s Board of Directors has elected three new directors and reelected four current members to serve on the association’s board.

The actions were taken virtually after the time for additional nominations closed at the end of February. The board is AUSA’s governing body.

Elected to serve as directors are Jim Cannon, president and CEO of AM General; retired Sgt. Maj. of the Army Kenneth Preston; and Bob Tyrer, co-president of the Cohen Group.

Preston will replace retired Sgt. Maj. of the Army Jack Tilley, and Tyrer will replace Rudy de Leon, a former deputy secretary of defense.

Elected for additional three-year terms are Phebe Novakovic, chairman and CEO of General Dynamics; Mark Roualet, executive vice president for combat systems at General Dynamics; Mitch Snyder, president and CEO of Bell; and Andy Hove, managing director for the Horisonter Group. 

All but one of the candidates were nominated at the board’s Dec. 6 meeting.

Their three-year terms are effective July 1.
