McMahon to lead C-17 group at Robins | News
Retired Maj. Gen. Bob McMahon's next step has been announced, a week after he said he was stepping down as president and CEO of the 21st Century Partnership for another opportunity.
McMahon has been named the Director of C-17 Field Operations at Robins Air Force Base, according to an email release from Boeing Vice President and C-17 Program Manager Gus Urzua and Warner Robins Chamber of Commerce President Morgan Law.
McMahon will oversee business operations and more than 1,000 employees around the globe.
He is a former commander of the Warner Robins Air Logistics Center at Robins.
Last week, McMahon announced he'd pursue another opportunity, but would remain in Central Georgia.
The news release from Urzua says:
"I'm very pleased to announce that effective May 9, 2014, retired Air Force Maj. Gen. Robert (Bob) McMahon has been selected and will lead the new C-17 Field Operations organization located at Robins Air Force Base, Ga.
