Regi Brown sworn in as Assistant Secretary of the Army for Manpower and
July 31, 2001
Secretary of the Army Tom White (WP '67) swore Regi Brown in as the new ASA,
M&RA in a ceremony at the Pentagon on July 31, 2001. Secretary White's remarks
about Regi's selection indicated that he had three criteria for the person
selected for this job: that the candidate knew and loved the Army, know their
way around the government, and knew the business world. Secretary White went
on to say that Regi fit those criteria perfectly, serving as a soldier, a
senior member of USAID, and most recently, the head of his own business.
Regi's appointment will directly involve him in the Army's transformation and
the adoption of best practices from civilian industry and comes at a crucial
time for the Army.
Regi's family was in attendance as were a number of classmates and wives.
Regi, in a warm gesture honoring those classmates that attended, named them
to Secretary White as they entered the room.
