Navy Recruiting Command (NRC) has selected Lt. Cmdr. Scott Bennie as the transformation officer.
Bennie has been placed in this role because of his background in liaising with the field over production, developing and implementing new systems and overseeing rollout and subsequent production and development of new operative procedures for the enterprise recruiting system as Navy Recruiting Districts look to transition to Navy Talent Acquisition Groups (NTAG).

"I came from being a recruiter so I understand where they're at right now and that I'm purely there to help them," said Bennie. "I'm here to hopefully make the transition as smooth as possible, especially on the backend once they've switched over."

Bennie has traveled to NTAG Portland multiple times for training the command's subordinate Talent Acquisition and Onboarding Centers (TAOC).

"I went out there and trained all their TAOC personnel," said Bennie. "I explained how it worked at the basic level and built on top of that."

As the transformation officer, Bennie knows that Sailors, whether serving or intending-to-serve, are more important than any process we can ever create to enlist or commission their service. During the training, Bennie focuses on the TAOC personnel's understanding of new data systems as well as the team functions associated with each step in the process. His goal is to properly train the new NTAG and TAOC leadership and field recruiters to ensure that NRC can continue to provide the best quality service and customer support throughout the new recruiting process.

"We've got a whole lot of smart people out there in Portland, New Orleans and here at headquarters working on this," said Bennie. "And regardless, change is going to happen, so we might as well get out in front of it."

Although NRC has 24 more districts to go, Lt. Cmdr. Scott Bennie looks forward to the progression of our systems and our Sailors one NTAG at a time.
