CORPUS CHRISTI, TX (January 9, 2017) -- Corpus Christi Army Depot Commander, Col. Allan H. Lanceta confirmed that the Director of Resource Management, Mark Wagner, was selected as the Depot's next Deputy to the Commander.

The Deputy to the Commander position is the highest civilian leadership role at the Department of Defense (DoD) helicopter maintenance facility. Wagner joined CCAD in 2015 with a broad range of financial management experience gained in the private sector and in DoD.

Well respected at every level of the organization, Wagner is currently working with Depot leaders and the workforce to balance and transition the Depot to deliver optimal helicopter products, training and support for every Defense mission it's called to support.

Since its inception in 1961, CCAD has grown to become the largest tenant organization on Naval Air Station Corpus Christi (NASCC), of which US Coast Guard Sector Corpus Christi is also a tenant.

CCAD makes up more than 58 acres, 2.3 million square feet of industrial space and sixty buildings and hangars, many of which have gone largely unchanged since they were built in 1941.


Designated a Center of Industrial and Technical Excellence for rotary wing aircraft, Corpus Christi Army Depot ensures aviation readiness through overhaul, repair, modification, retrofit, testing, recapitalization, and modernization of helicopters, engines and components. This effort includes world-wide on-site field maintenance teams, analytical crash investigations and chemical material process facilities. CCAD serves as a depot training base for active duty Army, National Guard, and reserve units. CCAD, as South Texas' largest industrial employer, employs more than 5500 personnel and contractors providing an overall economic impact of more than $1.14 Billon to the local community.
