Slattery officially took over the position from Capt. Sean Heritage during a change-of-command ceremony in Suffolk, Virginia, the Navy said Thursday.

Heritage, who will join the Defense Department‘s Defense Innovation Unit Experimental organization, was also given the Legion of Merit Award.

Slattery previously led the Navy Information Operations Command in Bahrain, which delivered information warfare support to the U.S. Central Command and to the 5th Fleet commander in support of Operation Enduring Freedom and maritime security operations.
