PEO Message to Industry

Industry Partners,

I would like to express my sincere appreciation for all the warm congratulatory messages on my selection as the Program Executive Officer for the STRI Organization.

I have had the pleasure of working with many of you during my previous assignments at PEO STRI and look forward to continuing that partnership working together toward a common goal – supporting our nation’s Warfighters. Remaining ready to meet any challenge to our great country or to our partner nations.

I fully understand the importance of maintaining a steady dialogue with you, our industry partners and community members. I fully support an active, open and ongoing communication effort to allay any concerns you may have. As we meet, I would appreciate frank dialog on how we can better improve communications and teamwork as we progress in our important business relationship. Working collaboratively and consistently, we jointly ensure the Army’s training devices and systems are developed, fielded, and sustained at a justifiable cost to our taxpayers.

Thank you for your ongoing support in ensuring we continue to meet our Army’s number one priority – Readiness – by putting the best training capabilities available into our Soldiers’ hands at the point of need.


Ms. Karen Saunders, SES
