Howdy from RELLIS!
My name is Tim Green, and I'm honored and humbled to serve as the new Director for the George H.W. Bush Combat Development Complex. In 2019 I helped lead the Texas A&M effort that resulted in the original cooperative agreement with Army Futures Command to modernize the nation’s fighting force, so this new role feels like returning to family. I have great admiration and respect for our team and believe wholeheartedly in our vision to accelerate the development, integration, and transfer of technology with an agile mindset to deliver critical capabilities for National Security. We have a lot of work to accomplish together.
I am very thankful for the work Ross Guieb has done as Executive Director in establishing BCDC, and for the work he will continue to do as he leads our efforts in forging strategic partnerships and increasing our client base.
Because of our growth and upcoming facility openings on the horizon, we have adjusted select roles and functions within our staff to improve clarity and service to our stakeholders. Dr. Nancy Currie-Gregg will continue to be our Chief Technology Officer (CTO) and Deputy Director with an emphasis on active BCDC research and associated RDT&E. Dr. Kim Sablon, as the Associate Director for National Defense Research Development will leverage her significant insights into future national security Science and Technology (S&T) requirements and needs, and will serve as our primary S&T interface with government agencies, national labs, DARPA and other and research partners. Pat Seiber’s role has expanded and he now also serves as our link to synchronize various visits and events at BCDC. We’re excited about your interest in visiting and establishing relationships with our BCDC family! You can find links in how to reach us on our website Contacts (tamus.edu).
As construction on our facilities moves closer to completion, we have had increased interest from government, industry (both large and small), and academia in establishing potential partnerships with us. I’ve asked Pat to manage this growing demand for exploratory meetings in a way to maximize the benefit to all of us. One way we propose to do this is through a monthly open house, where we can not only inform stakeholders about our efforts, but also allow potential academic and industry partners the opportunity to discuss collaboration opportunities. We plan to hold our first one of these on June 9th. If interested in participating, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
I'm thankful for the opportunity to continue serving in a manner that both honors the Aggie values and provides future servicemembers with the tools they need to keep our nation secure.
I look forward to serving with you!
Thank you & Gig ‘em---
