SPAWAR Systems Center Atlantic Executive Director Christopher Miller was recently honored with two prestigious awards.

Mr. Miller was selected as a 2010 Meritorious Executive in the Presidential Rank Award Program. Each year, the president recognizes and celebrates a small group of career senior executives and senior career employees with the Presidential Rank Award. Recipients of this prestigious award are strong leaders, professionals and scientists who achieve results and consistently demonstrate strength, integrity, industry and a relentless commitment to excellence in public service.

Mr. Miller was also recently presented the Department of the Navy Superior Civilian Service Award for his service while acting as Deputy Assistant Secretary of the Navy for Command, Control, Communications, Computers, Intelligence, Information Operations and Space from November 2010 to March 2011. Assistant Secretary of the Navy for Research, Development and Acquisition, Sean Stackley, presented Mr. Miller the award and citation which praised Mr. Miller's "superb leadership acquisition expertise and a tireless work ethic in this highly visible and demanding position," noting he also currently maintained his duties as the executive director and senior civilian of SSC Atlantic.

Mr. Miller has been at SSC Atlantic since January 2010. He was appointed to the Senior Executive Service in May 2006 and has 15 years of federal service.
