Military travel agency hires new head
The Military Travel Agency has hired a new director to help it attract more business and boost its finances, the company announced on Monday.
Juan Carlos Díaz, who was formerly the chief operating officer of Air Force Special Operations Command, has been named the new chief operating and administrative officer for the agency, according to the statement.
The new position was announced in a letter from Air Force Lt.
Gen. John R. Cramer, commander of the Air Force’s Air National Guard.
“Juan has a deep understanding of the aviation industry and the strategic importance of providing a safe, secure and cost-effective travel option for the military,” the letter said.
“Juan is a proven leader who has a proven track record in the aviation field and is the right fit for Air Force special operations.”
The Air Force said in March that it would begin hiring for the new position in September.
The company is part of the broader efforts to increase business, expand its operations and expand its travel portfolio.
In May, the Air National Guardsmen Association announced it would spend $300 million to help expand its services.
The Air National guard, the nation’s armed forces, operates a wide range of aviation, security and military operations, from air traffic control to intelligence gathering.
