WASHINGTON — The US Defense Department’s industrial policy chief, Brett Lambert, will step down from his position at the end of the summer, according to sources.
Lambert, the deputy assistant secretary for manufacturing and industrial base policy, told his staff last week that he would leave after more than four years on the job.
During his tenure at DoD, Lambert has been instrumental in forging stronger relations between DoD and industry. He has also been the driving force behind several successful manufacturing initiatives, including the stand up of a military-backed 3-D printing center.
His future plans have not been announced although his background is steeped in defense and intelligence-related positions in the private sector. He has also previously worked for the State Department.
