Maj. Gen. Sandra Finan — a former U.S. Air Force Nuclear Weapons Center commander — has been named deputy chief information officer for command, control, communications and computers and information infrastructure at the Defense Department.
DoD reported Finan’s appointment in a Friday release and said she moves to the new role from her current position as special assistant to the assistant chief of staff for strategic deterrence and nuclear integration at the Air Force.
The three-decade Air Force veteran has held nuclear and space assignments in satellite command and control, training and assessment and satellite and missile crew operations.
Finan became AFNWC commander in 2013 after service as principal assistant deputy administrator for military application at the office of defense programs at the Energy Department’s National Nuclear Security Administration for two years.
She was named director of nuclear operations at the Air Force Space Command in 2008 prior to her appointment as inspector general of the Air Force Global Strike Command in 2009.
