President Donald Trump has nominated Rear Adm. Mark H. Buzby to be the next head of the U.S. Maritime Administration (MARAD).

Buzby served as commander, Military Sealift Command, and has also held key positions on the Navy Staff, the Joint Staff, and several Navy fleet staffs.

He is a recipient of the Navy Distinguished Service Medal, the Bronze Star and numerous other personal and unit awards.

His naval career–including serving in at-sea billets, primarily on cruisers and destroyers–has spanned 34 years.

Buzby currently serves as president and CEO of the National Defense Transportation Association, a group of transportation, logistics and passenger travel professionals in industry and government.

“Admiral Buzby is a remarkable leader with the skills and experience needed to enhance the American Merchant Marine’s ability to carry out its essential roles in support of the U.S. economy and national defense,” said MM&P President Don Marcus.

“We commend the administration on his selection.”
