Syring replaces Lt. Gen. Patrick O’Reilly, who was the subject of a DoD Inspector General report on his alleged abusive management style. In May, the IG recommended appropriate corrective action against O’Reilly.
Syring comes to MDA after serving as the program executive officer for Integrated Warfare Systems, Naval Sea Systems Command for about two years. In his previous role, Syring was responsible for acquiring, developing, delivering and sustaining integrated weapons systems for ships, submarines, carriers and aircraft within the fleet and joint force.
DoD didn’t say what is happening to O’Reilly.
