The Association of the U.S. Army’s Board of Directors has nominated two new candidates to serve as directors on the association’s board.

The actions were taken when the board, AUSA’s governing body, met June 28.

Nominated to serve as directors are Chris Kubasik, vice chair and CEO of L3Harris Technologies, and Ted Colbert, president and CEO of Boeing Defense, Space and Security.

Kubasik was nominated to succeed William Brown, who recently retired from L3Harris, and Colbert would fill the term of Leanne Caret, who recently retired from Boeing.

Additionally, during a virtual meeting in April, the board elected three new directors and reelected four current members to serve on the board.

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. 

Their three-year terms were effective July 1.
