Major General Renner assumes command of NATO Communication and Information Systems Group

MONS, Belgium – Major General Wolfgang Renner assumed command of the NATO Communication and Information Systems Group from Major General Walter Huhn during a ceremony presided over by General (Sir) James Everard, the Deputy Supreme Allied Commander Europe, at Supreme Headquarters Allied Powers Europe on March 19, 2018.

Major General Huhn, who assumed command of NCISG on July 24, 2015, guided the Group through multiple demanding challenges including the introduction of new communication and information systems equipment, exercises Trident Juncture 2015, Trident Javelin 2017, the Steadfast Cobalt series of exercises and multiple stages of internal adaptation.

"When I look back and recall these achievements, I need to underline that all personnel in NCISG can be proud of their individual contributions,” said Major General Huhn.  "This clearly is a team effort - involving everybody within NCISG, but also our supported commands and forces and the NATO Agencies.”

Major General Renner, the former commander of the German Armed Forces Command Information Systems Services Center in Rheinbach, Germany, thanked Major General Huhn and his personnel for a job well done.

"It is my honor and privilege to have you here,” said Major General Renner. "I am looking forward to work with you in supporting Alliance Operations and Missions by tackling the challenging tasks ahead.”
