DEFAERO Report Daily Podcast [Apr 07, 2020]


On this episode of the DefAero Report Daily Podcast, sponsored by Bell, our guest Sean O’Keefe, the 69th Navy secretary and former NASA administrator who is now the Phanstiel Chair in Strategic Management & Leadership at the Maxwell School at Syracuse University, discusses the resignation yesterday of Tom Modly as acting Navy secretary in the wake of his remarks after firing Capt. Brett Crozier as commanding officer of USS Theodore Roosevelt. Modly lost confidence in Crozier’s leadership after a letter from the carrier commander urging Navy leaders to evacuate his sailors from their ship after a coronavirus outbreak was made public. Modly resigned after speaking with Defense Secretary Mark Esper on Tuesday morning. Our naval coverage is sponsored by Fincantieri Marinette Marine.
