James F. Geurts, who has been acting as the Navy Undersecretary, announces retirement. He submitted a letter to Navy leadership on Tuesday and uploaded it to Linkedin on Wednesday. In the letter, he explains his retirement will take place later this month.

Since February, James Geurts has been acting undersecretary of the Navy. He said in his letter that the choice to retire “was an extremely difficult decision given my strong belief in our mission and pride in being part of the Dept. of the Navy team.”

However, no specific reason was given for the departure.

Lt. Ashley Nekoui, a spokeswoman for Geurts, confirmed the retirement. She said the search to fill the position is ongoing.

The undersecretary position is the primary assistant to the Secretary of the Navy and the chief operating officer for the branch.

Before becoming the undersecretary, Geurts served as an officer in the U.S. Air Force and retired after 22 years of service. He also took part in civilian roles for the Navy that focused on acquisition before being nominated as acting undersecretary. In total, Geurts served 38 years in the government.

“While I depart with a heavy heart, I will do so with great confidence in all of you… I am hopeful I was able to make a difference to those I was privileged to head and serve,” said James Geurts.
