Camarillo was sworn in Feb. 8, 2022, as the 35th Army undersecretary. In this role, Camarillo is the Army secretary’s senior civilian assistant and principal adviser on matters related to the management and operation of the Army. He also is the chief management officer of the Army.

A former assistant Air Force secretary for manpower and reserve affairs, Camarillo is an attorney who also has served as the principal deputy assistant Army secretary for acquisition, logistics and technology, helping to lead and supervise Army modernization programs, procurement, logistics and research and development investment.

Since returning to the Army, Camarillo has said his top priorities include prevention harmful behaviors among soldiers and finding a balance between readiness and investing in the future through the service’s modernization programs.

“I think we've got a tremendous amount of momentum headed into our modernization portfolio,” Camarillo said last fall. “Many of our programs … are working their way through the process to achieve these critical milestones and getting to the next phase … where we can field capabilities that are relevant to our soldiers.”
