Selection of the 8th Chief Warrant Officer of the Adjutant General’s Corps

From CW5 Jacque Nixon, Chief Warrant Officer (CWO) of the AG Corps:  AG Team, please join me in congratulating CW5 Mark Hickman on his selection as our 8th CWO for the Adjutant General’s Corps!  This is a great day for our Corps and our Warrant Officer cohort.  Mark’s leadership, experience at the Tactical, Operational and Institutional levels, coupled with his forward-thinking and can-do attitude will assist our AG leaders as we pursue a competent, agile and efficient Corps of Human Resources and Bandmaster Soldiers.  Mark will be the CWO in charge of seeing IPPS-A becoming reality and a key member that will continue to help oversee our Army’s HR transformation.  This is a great time to be an Adjutant General leader and an excellent opportunity for an accomplished leader and technical/tactical expert.

CW5 Mark Hickman selected as the 8th Chief Warrant Officer of the Adjutant General’s Corps.

Also, “Save the Date” for the AG Senior Warrant Council (SWC) & 420A/420C WOPD, and the Change of Responsibility (COR) between CW5 Jacque Nixon and CW5 Mark Hickman, which will be held 26 -27 March 2020.  An official invitation with details on the events and how to register to attend will be sent out on 31 January 2020.
