Vice Adm. Mat Winter today assumed command of the F-35 joint program office, according to a Defense Department statement.
Lt. Gen. Christopher Bogdan's departure from the JPO coincides with his retirement from the Air Force after 34 years of service.
"Since he took [the] helm of the F-35 program in 2012, General Bogdan's acquisition leadership has been bold, effective and decisive," Winter said in the statement. "His approach matured our relationships throughout the F-35 enterprise and set us on a course for success."
Winter served as Bogdan's deputy for six months before taking command of the JPO.
