In this position, he was responsible for a $3.9 billion dollar program to improve power projection platforms in the United States. During his Army career, King was at the helm of various logistic operations, which included the shipping of combat equipment in support of operations in Haiti to meet National Command Authority requirements for deployment. Mr. King was also in charge of the management and tracking of 12,000 ocean shipping containers worldwide; and the movement of Department of Defense cargo and personnel through Army and civilian seaports worldwide. He retired in 1998 as a Brigadier General. King received a Masters of Business Administration, with a concentration in Logistics from the Florida Institute of Technology; and a Bachelor of Arts degree from Auburn University.
