A new leader will head programs for cargo and training aircraft at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base.
Lynda T. Rutledge was named program executive officer of the Mobility Directorate, replacing Kevin W. Buckley who stepped down in February to pursue work in the private sector.
Rutledge most recently was in charge of the Agile Combat Support Directorate since 2015 where she oversaw a $9 billion budget and 600 programs.
She’s a former deputy director of the Fighters and Bombers Directorate, also at Wright-Patterson.
The directorates are part of the Air Force Life Cycle Management center headquartered at the Miami Valley base.
She began her Air Force civilian career as a mathematician at the Test and Analysis Directorate at Eglin Air Force Base and is a University of Florida graduate.
