Projects were not the only district winners.

Louisville District Air Force Support Section Chief, Dewey Rissler, was selected as the Civilian Project Manager of the Year.

According to the nomination package, Rissler delivered critical leadership to Wright-Patterson Air Force Base’s huge 2005 BRAC development/bed down effort. He spearheaded the largest construction endeavor at the base since World War II—more than one million square feet of facility construction (a $332 million effort)—the largest Base Realignment and Closure Act (BRAC) construction in the command as well as in the Air Force. The narrative reads, Rissler is committed to excellence—a true problem solver with the uncanny aptitude to solve complex issues. His calm, respectful demeanor paired with extensive experience and professionalism set the tone for the team.
