Shon Manasco, former executive vice president and chief administrative officer at the United Services Automobile Association, has been nominated to serve as the Air Force's assistant secretary for manpower and reserve affairs, according to a White House statement issued Friday.

Manasco, of Texas, worked at USAA until August 2016, according to his LinkedIn profile. As chief administrative officer, he "was responsible for leading the association's business solutions, information technology, and innovation organizations, as well as corporate services, enterprise cyber and physical security, procurement and business alliances," the White House said. Previously, he served as senior vice president and chief human resource officer for the Baltimore, MD-based energy company Constellation.

He also comes from a military background: Manasco graduated from the U.S. Military Academy at West Point and was a commanding officer in the Army at Ft. Bragg, NC, the White House said. He later directed finance and accounting at the Army's Office of Military Support, among other jobs.
