Title: Leadership

Mr. Todd C. Mellon, SES

Mr. Todd C. Mellon
Mr. Mellon was appointed to the Senior Executive Service as the Director of the Industrial & Logistics Maintenance Planning/Sustainment Department on July 24, 2005.

Mr. Mellon has extensive experience in all aspects of logistics and the sustainment of Naval Aviation Systems, having worked for over 21 years in the field.

In his current position, Mr. Mellon leads a national organization of over 1600 people and is responsible for ensuring supportability of newly developed weapon systems, and for the establishment and sustainment of integrated logistics support for fleet operations and maintenance throughout the life cycle of current Naval Systems. His Department leads the performance of continuous maintenance planning to ensure integration of maintenance and supply functions across the Naval Aviation Enterprise.

In December 2001, Mr. Mellon was assigned as the Division Director for Logistics Information Systems. In this position, he led the development of an enterprise architecture to consolidate information systems and reduced sustainment costs by nearly 20 percent each year. Mr. Mellon was then assigned as the Technical Director for the Department and directed the development of a resource optimization plan. The result was a better alignment of the organization, reduced infrastructure gained through process improvement efficiencies, and an annual savings of approximately $4 million a year to the Command.

Mr. Mellon was selected as the Assistant Program Manager for Logistics of the Navy's newest tactical aircraft, the F/A-18E/F, in 1997. He directed the acquisition planning and execution of the logistics support system for the Navy's newest tactical aircraft, and successfully developed and implemented the Naval Aviation's first performance based logistics support contract with industry. It continues to serve as the model for industry partnership, throughout the Navy and DoD. In recognition of this significant and unprecedented accomplishment, Mr. Mellon was awarded the Navy's Admiral Stan Arthur Civilian Logistician of the Year Award.

Mr. Mellon entered the Navy as part of the Logistics Intern Development Program and graduated in April 1991 with an assignment as the Assistant Program Manager for Logistics for the F/A-18 Hornet's engine program. He was responsible for the management and support of over 2500 jet engines for the weapon system. In June 1993, Mr. Mellon was assigned as the Propulsion and Power Team Lead and led a team in the development of a new organizational construct as the Command shifted from a functional organization to a competency aligned organization supporting program teams.

Mr. Mellon was born in Portsmouth, Va and as the son of a Navy Chief lived up and down the east coast. He graduated from Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University with a Bachelor's Degree in Aeronautical Engineering in 1986.
