In Conversation with General Ann Dunwoody (US Army, Ret.)
General Ann Dunwoody (US Army, Ret.) recently retired as a four-star US Army General after thirty-eight years of service. For the last four years in the Army, she led and ran the Army’s largest global logistics command, comprising of 69,000 military and civilians, located in all fifty states and over 140 countries. She managed a budget of $60 billion and was responsible for the oversight of approximately $70 billion in service contracts. She managed and operationalized the Army’s global supply chain in support of Iraq and Afghanistan, and contingency operations in Haiti, Pakistan, and Japan, while simultaneously moving the Command Headquarters from Fort Belvoir, VA to Huntsville, AL as a result of Base Realignment and Closing.

In 2008, General Dunwoody earned the historic distinction of being the first woman in U.S. Military history to achieve the rank of four-star general. She is the fourth generation of her family to serve in the U.S. Army and the third to achieve flag officer rank.

Today, General Dunwoody is president of First 2 Four, LLC, a leadership mentoring and strategic advisory services company, and serves on the board of directors for L-3 Communications, Republic Services, and Logistics Management Institute.
