John Bryant, senior vice president of defense programs at Oshkosh‘s (NYSE: OSK) defense business segment, has been promoted to corporate senior vice president and president of Oshkosh Defense.

The company said Monday Bryant’s responsibilities will cover tactical wheeled vehicle programs, product development, manufacturing, operations, vehicle lifecycle sustainment and aftermarket services.

Wilson Jones, Oshkosh president and CEO, said Bryant has helped the growth of the company’s defense segment and aided the development of its heavy, medium and mine-resistant tactical wheeled vehicle product line for the Defense Department.

He added that Bryant also led Oshkosh’s efforts to secure the U.S. Army‘s Joint Light Tactical Vehicle program and will work to continue the strategies of its defense business unit.

Oshkosh won a potential $7 billion contract in August to develop armored vehicles to support the JLTV program that will work to replace the Humvee for the Army and U.S. Marine Corps.

Bryant served under the Marine Corps for more than 28 years as a program manager for several U.S. and foreign military sales acquisition programs, and he has also worked as a professor for the Defense Acquisition University.

The retired Marine Corps colonel holds a bachelor’s degree in political science from Marquette University and a Level III program management certification from DAU.
