iRocket appoints General Stephen Lyons to its board of directors

Missile developer iRocket, which relies on additive manufacturing and other technologies, has appointed General Stephen Lyons to its board of directors. The former U.S. Army general was also named the new commissioner for ports and supply chains on the Biden administration’s Task Force on Supply Chain Disruptions in May 2022. 

General Steve Lyons, joins the Board following more than 38 years of distinguished military service, culminating in his service from 2018 to 2021 as the 13th commander of US Transportation Command (TRANSCOM), one of 11 DOD combatant commands responsible to deploy and sustain military forces globally, provide humanitarian assistance, and integrate the Department’s multibillion-dollar joint deployment and distribution enterprise. He retired from the United States Army in 2021.

“General Lyons’ deep understanding of defense and broad experience in military operations and matters of national security will be of great value to our Board,” said iRocket Chairman and CEO Asad Malik.

In May 2022, General Lyons was appointed by the White House to be the new Port and Supply Chain Envoy to the Biden-Harris Administration Supply Chain Disruptions Task Force. General Lyons works with the U.S. Department of Transportation (USDOT), the White House National Economic Council (NEC), ports, rail, trucking and other private companies across our supply chains to continue to address bottlenecks, speed up the movement of goods, and help lower costs for American families.
