The Senate on Thursday confirmed two of President Biden's nominees for assistant Air Force secretaries.
Frank Calvelli, a senior vice president at Booz Allen Hamilton, was confirmed as the first assistant Air Force secretary for space acquisition.
Kristyn Jones, a managing director in KPMG’s federal advisory practice, was confirmed as assistant Air Force secretary for financial management and comptroller.
Both confirmations passed on a voice vote.
In his Senate Armed Services Committee nomination hearing, Calvelli said he would “drive speed” into the process for fielding new capabilities and bolster resiliency in space architecture.
