U.S. Navy Admiral Michael G. Mullen was confirmed as the 17th Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff on October 1, 2007,[1] replacing Gen. Peter Pace, who stepped down in September 2007. Prior, Mullen served as Chief of Naval Operations.[2]

"Considered one of the most influential chairmen of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, Admiral Mike Mullen takes a fresh approach to the most important geopolitical issues of the 21st Century. Mullen oversaw the end of the combat mission in Iraq and the development of a new military strategy for Afghanistan, while promoting international partnerships, new technologies, and new counter-terrorism tactics. Since retiring from the Navy, he has joined the boards of General Motors, Sprint, and the Bloomberg Family Foundation. He teaches at the Woodrow Wilson School of International and Public Affairs at Princeton, and is renowned for his role in dismantling “don’t ask, don’t tell”. Today, he shares his deep experience in leading change in complex organizations, his assessment of geopolitical relationships, diversity implementation, crisis management, economic policy, risk management, and the growing and existential threat of cyber."[3]
