The Fort Campbell Strong Regional Defense Alliance Board of Directors has announced the selection of its first executive director.
Retired Command Sergeant Major Rory Malloy is a former Sergeant Major policy advisor to the Assistant Secretary of the Army at the Pentagon and currently serves as an Executive Coach for the True Growth Leadership Course for Brigade/Battalion Commanders and Command Sergeants Major, according to a news release from the Pennyrile Area Development District.

The Fort Campbell Strong initiative began in 2015 to define a path for economic diversification and growth in the six-county region surrounding Fort Campbell including Christian, Todd and Trigg counties in Kentucky along with Montgomery, Stewart and Robertson counties in Tennessee.
PADD officials say the alliance will provide a dedicated, unified voice on matters involving Fort Campbell and the surrounding region with a primary goal to support the overall health of the region’s military and defense sector through economic and workforce development activities.
