Retired Brig. Gen. James Iacocca is KRDA's first President / Chief Executive Officer. Iacocca’s Army career included multiple assignments at Fort Knox. He is the former Adjutant General of U.S. Army Human Resources Command, Deputy Commanding General of U.S. Army Recruiting Command and the former Brigade Commander for the Army’s 3rd Recruiting Brigade.
In addition to his experience at Fort Knox, Iacocca served at multiple installations including Fort Bragg, N.C. with the 82ndAirborne Division and Army Special Operations Command deploying to both Afghanistan and Iraq. He also served at the Pentagon on the staff for the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff.
It’s a privilege to lead KRDA. Fort Knox injects more than $2.5 billion into our regional economy each year and there is tremendous potential for it to have an even greater economic impact.
