Elana Broitman will soon leave the Defense Department as Deputy Assistant Secretary of Defense for Manufacturing & Industrial Base Policy. Andre Gudger — Director of the Office of Small Business Programs — will take over her role on an acting basis until Secretary Broitman’s position is filled. On In Depth with Francis Rose, Broitman said the companies she’s worked with in the past year have shown her (and the department) they can do amazing things.
