In 2021, the Defense Information Systems Agency experienced several leadership changes as a number of longstanding DISA senior leaders retired within the past year.
Among those significant changes was U.S. Air Force Lt. Gen. Robert J. Skinner assuming the role of agency director. Several months into his directorship, Skinner realigned DISA assets under four centers, all with new leadership at the helm: Digital Capabilities and Security Center, Enterprise Integration and Innovation Center, Hosting and Compute Center and Operations and Infrastructure Center.
Now serving as the Operations and Infrastructure Center Director, Don Means Jr. is an agency insider with a perspective heavily influenced by his time outside of DISA in academia, the U.S. Navy and industry.
“Last year, as I selected my senior leadership team to head each of the centers, I was looking for forward-leaning leaders who are bold thinkers, mission driven, customer centered and results oriented,” said Skinner. “I needed someone to take Ops to the next level and Don provided the best combination of expertise, leadership and bringing teams together in a true partnership to tackle the many challenges that we face now, and in the future.”
