Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin nominated Bloomberg to “leverage his experience and strategic insights on innovation, business and public service,” Pentagon Press Secretary John Kirby said on Wednesday, The Hill reports

Bloomberg will bring a “wealth of experience in technology innovation, business and government to the Defense Innovation Board,” Kirby added. “His leadership will be critical to ensuring the department has access to the best and brightest minds in science, technology and innovation through the team of diverse experts that he will lead as chair of that board.” 

“And obviously the Secretary is very grateful that Mr. Bloomberg was willing to take this additional responsibility on and very grateful that he’s willing to serve in that capacity,” he continued.
