Senior Executive Service Member Named at NAVSUP WSS

I am pleased to announce that Mr. John Soracco was selected as Naval Supply Systems Command's newest Senior Executive Service (SES) member. He will serve in the newly established position of chief logistician-aviation at Naval Supply Systems Command Weapon Systems Support.

He retired at the rank of Captain after a 30-year career as a Supply Corps officer in the Navy. He began with his commissioning from Washington State University Navy Reserve Officer Training Corps program in 1990. He has served in a variety of aviation logistics positions, including sea tours aboard the frigate USS Jesse L. Brown (FF 1089); cruiser USS Vicksburg (CG 69); the guided missile frigate USS Lewis B. Puller (FFG 23); destroyer USS Kinkaid (DD 965); aircraft carrier USS Ronald Reagan (CVN 76); and served as supply officer, USS Abraham Lincoln (CVN 72). Shore assignments include force supply officer, Commander, Naval Air Force, U.S. Pacific Fleet; commanding officer, Defense Logistics Agency Distribution Center, San Diego, Calif.; operations branch head, spares program and policy, Office of the Chief of Naval Operations.

He holds a Master of Business Administration and a Master of Arts in National Security and Strategic Studies. Soracco is also a graduate of the University of Pennsylvania Wharton Executive Developmental Program and Pennsylvania State University Smeal College of Business Executive Program Supply Chain Leadership. He is Level III Life Cycle Logistics certified and a member of the Defense Acquisition Corps.

Mr. Soracco possesses the leadership skills and logistics experience to oversee the aviation supply chain. I know he will prove of immeasurable benefit to NAVSUP Enterprise and to our Navy, delivering services that maintain critical weapon systems. Please join me in congratulating Mr. Soracco.
