Alan Estevez Joins Deloitte’s Federal Practice, Brings Nearly 40 Years of Supply Chain Experience to Clients’ Needs
WASHINGTON, June 28, 2017— Deloitte announced today that Alan Estevez — a recognized leader in the defense and aerospace community — has joined its federal practice as a national security strategy and logistics executive for Deloitte Consulting LLP. In this role, he will work with a range of clients to help innovate and transform their acquisition, logistics, supply chain and sustainment operations.
“Estevez’s 36 years of experience at the U.S. Department of Defense and leadership in managing defense acquisition, budgets and one of the most complex supply chains in the world, make him one of the leading authorities in this field,” said Nathan Houser, principal, Deloitte Consulting LLP and defense and national security sector leader. “His proven leadership in the defense industry has not only led to successful logistics operations in wartime and cost reductions across defense industrial operations, but also an increased awareness of the importance of the supply chain for our military. He brings a wealth of experience that can benefit Deloitte’s clients as we develop and deliver solutions needed to meet every mission.”
Estevez most recently served as the principal deputy under secretary of defense for acquisition, technology and logistics at the Department of Defense and he was the first career federal executive confirmed by the U.S. Senate as the assistant secretary of defense (logistics and materiel readiness). At the Defense Department, he developed, implemented and managed acquisition, contracting and supply chain programs and policies that increased the combat effectiveness as well as the department’s efficiency and buying power.
“I’ve spent nearly four decades in the Department of Defense understanding the unique requirements and needs of the military, developing new ways for the department to innovate, implement and better manage its logistics operations to drive mission success,” said Estevez. “I am excited to join the Deloitte team and look forward to working with our federal and international clients.”
During his career, Estevez has been honored numerous times: three Department of Defense Distinguished Public Service Medals; Distinguished Civilian Service Medal; Presidential Rank Distinguished Executive Award (2011), Presidential Rank Meritorious Executive Award (2006), Service to America Medal (2005), and two Office of the Secretary of Defense Medals for Meritorious Civilian Service. He was a recipient of the 2011 National Defense Transportation Association Distinguished Government Service Award and, most recently received the 2017 National Defense Industrial Association Logistician Emeritus Award.
Estevez holds a Bachelor of Arts in political science from Rutgers University and a Master of Science in national resource strategy from the Industrial College of the Armed Forces at the National Defense University.
