The Federal Managers Association has presented its Manager of the Year award to Alan Kent, president of its chapter at the Naval Undersea Warfare Center in Keyport, Wash.

The organization said cited his leadership of an initiative to “instill an improved culture of procedural compliance within torpedo maintenance personnel. He also led the successful delivery of many Navy and Department of Defense products that are directly utilized by the warfighter.”

He also provides support for the facility’s Health, Hobbies and Heritage Day, and supports its Industry Day, “where he showcases the accomplishments and opportunities at the facility,” the announcement said.

Each FMA chapter may nominate one person for the annual award, which is based on workplace accomplishments and contributions, FMA involvement at the chapter, region or national level, and local community accomplishments and contributions.
