New DLA Energy Commander Lectures on DOD Efficiency

By MC3 Michael Ehrlich

Commander of Defense Logistics Agency (DLA) Energy, U.S. Air Force Brig. Gen. Mark M. McLeod, speaks with NPS students during an operations analysis class in Glasgow Hall, Jan. 23. McLeod asked the students about their upcoming thesis work, noting the importance of their research and how it could make an impact on the Department of Defense and other government agencies in the years to come.

"There is a lot to be said for all the things that you are experiencing at NPS," said McLeod. "You are going to get value out of this for many years. The [Department of Defense] wants us to be efficient, not only in operational energy, but in installation infrastructure and so many other arenas … There is a tremendous effort to find ways to reduce costs everywhere."

As commander of DLA Energy, McLeod is responsible for providing comprehensive energy solutions in the most effective and efficient manner possible. He spent time at NPS to deliver a Defense Energy Seminar to NPS faculty and students, where he discussed the value of the logistics and the importance of efficiency.

"We have identified that there are opportunities to save time and money, and there are many tools in logistics to find the solution," he said.

Prior to his arrival to DLA Energy, McLeod served as the director for Logistics, Engineering and Security Assistance for U.S. Pacific Command Headquarters at Camp H.M. Smith, Hawaii.
