SAN ANTONIO — U.S. Army Installation Management Command welcomed Maj. Gen. Camille Nichols to the team as the new deputy commanding general for operations and chief of staff in a ceremony at Fort Sam Houston Theater, here, Nov 1.

“She was handpicked for this position and we are blessed to have her,” said Lt. Gen. Mike Ferriter, commanding general, IMCOM. “She knows the business of taking care of people. She’s knows the business of transforming.”

Nichols enlisted in the Army in 1975 in her home town of Niagara Falls, N.Y. In 1981, she was commissioned as an engineer officer upon graduation from the U.S. Military Academy at West Point.

In her previous assignments, Nichols was U.S. Army Contracting Command’s first commanding general and served as program executive officer, Program Executive Office Soldier, at Fort Belvoir, Va.

Nichols has more than 25 years of experience in Department of Defense acquisition. She has also served in various engineer jobs earlier in her career as an engineer officer in tactical engineering units. Nichols has a unique distinction as a member of the 1984 U.S. Olympic women’s handball team, serving as manager and assistant coach.

“Thank you for allowing me to be a part of your team,” said Nichols. “I look forward to meeting and spending time with all of you.”
