He also held key positions on the Navy Staff, the Joint Staff, and several fleet staffs.

Message from the U.S. Maritime Administration Executive Director:
The President today announced the intention to nominate Mark ‘Buz’ Buzby to be Maritime Administrator. RADM Buzby is a Kings Pointer who has worked closely with MARAD throughout his military and post-military career. Once confirmed by the Senate, he will be able to hit the ground running as Administrator.
Today’s announcement is an important first step. The White House will next have to formally submit his name to the Senate. The Senate will hold a confirmation hearing in committee. If everything goes smoothly, RADM Buzby could become our next Administrator in a few weeks. However, there are frequently delays in any nomination process, and if the Senate takes a summer recess it may be early fall before he can be confirmed.
