Former Robins leader named AFMC vice commander

Another former Robins Air Force Base commander has been named to a top post in the Air Force Materiel Command.

Maj. Gen. Warren Berry, formerly installation commander at Robins, will be the new AFMC vice commander, the command announced Thursday. The Air Force Materiel Command is the parent agency of Robins.

Then a colonel, he served at Robins from 2006 to 2009, first as vice commander of the 78th Air Base Wing and then as commander of the wing.

He is now the director of logistics at Headquarters Air Mobility Command at Scott Air Force Base, Illinois.

He will replace the current AFMC vice commander, Maj. Gen. H. Brent Baker, who is retiring. A date for the change of command has not been set.

Chrissy Miner, chief operating officer of the 21s Century Partnership, which works to protect jobs at Robins, served in public affairs under Berry at Robins.

“He was outstanding when he was at Robins and he is going to do great things for Air Force Materiel Command,” Miner said.

He is the third former Robins leader to be named to a top AFMC position in the past month.

Maj. Gen. Lee Levy, who served as the commander over maintenance at Robins, will be the new commander of the Air Force Sustainment Center, with a promotion to lieutenant general. He will be the Air Force’s top man over depot maintenance.

Maj. Gen. Theresa Carter, who also formerly served as an installation commander at Robins, was recently named to be commander of the newly formed Air Force Installation & Support Center. The center consolidates other commands that provide installation and mission support to AFMC bases.
