WHEELER ARMY AIRFIELD — The 2011 Directorate of Public Works Business Management Executive of the Year Award was presented to Kent Anderson, chief, Program Management Branch, Business Operations Division, DPW, U.S. Army Garrison-Hawaii, at the 2011 Installation Management Symposium, in San Antonio, April 21.

“Anderson is a very dedicated employee, and (he) is personally concerned with meeting the customers’ needs and ensuring we are good stewards of the dollar, to the point where our Army community receives good services and products for the money it has invested,” said Debra Zedalis, regional director, IMCOM-Pacific Region.

The Business Management Executive of the Year Award recognizes managerial excellence in the DPW business operations and integration management functions at the installation level. It also recognizes the complex activities and responsibilities involved in successfully integrating requirements, plans and programs into effective execution efforts.

“Under his expert leadership and direction, the Business Operations Division has overcome significant obstacles in the past year,” said Robert Eastwood, director, DPW, USAG-HI. “He has clearly emerged as a key member of the DPW and USAG-HI team, acting as DPW deputy director and director on numerous occasions.”

“(The acting chief) job was good experience,” Anderson said. “I was really lucky. People in this (Business Operations) Division work well together; they are all motivated. The award is really more a testament to them than to me.”

He also said he was surprised to receive the award.

“I didn’t know that I’d been nominated,” he said.
