WASHINGTON (AFNS) —  President Barack Obama appointed Lisa S. Disbrow to serve as the acting under secretary of the Air Force March 30.

Disbrow will take over for Eric Fanning who was recently appointed as chief of staff for Secretary of Defense Ash Carter.

“Lisa Disbrow is already a tremendous asset to our Air Force leadership team and is perfectly suited to be the acting under secretary of the Air Force,” said Secretary of the Air Force Deborah Lee James. “Her experience within our financial management division combined with her expertise on the joint staff and her time as an active-duty Airman provides a broad range of capability that is instrumental in how we continue to move forward.”

Her appointment as acting USecAF is effective immediately.

“I’m excited to continue the great work that under secretary Fanning started in this position,” Disbrow said. “Serving our Airmen alongside great leaders like secretary James and general Welsh is an honor.”

Disbrow will continue to serve as the assistant secretary of the Air Force for financial management and comptroller. She has been in that position since 2014.
