Since 2018, COL Steve Hart has been directly supporting Army modernization across both Army Futures Command (AFC) and the Assistant Secretary of the Army (Acquisition, Logistics and Technology). Currently, Steve serves as an Army Reserve Acquisition Officer with the 75th Innovation Command and recently transitioned from his role as ASA(ALT) CTO Chief of Staff into a role guiding project teams within the Army Rapid Capabilities and Critical Technologies Office (RCCTO).
Steve began his military career in 1980 as a Marine before a direct commission in the Army Reserves in 1996. During his 41 years of military service, he has served in three combat zones (Desert Shield, Operation Iraqi Freedom, and Operation Enduring Freedom) and held a variety of leadership positions, including Brigade Commander (Army 51Z Acquisition), Battalion Commander (Basic Combat Training), and HQDA/Corps staff officer, among others.
Regardless of the role, Steve works to bring people together and treat each task — and each individual in his community — with unwavering respect and enthusiasm. A Plymouth Meeting, PA, native, he lives there again today in a dream house built upon his childhood football field that he shares with his wife of 30 years, Kay. In October 2021, Steve is planning to retire from military service and spend time traveling with Kay and their two dogs, Nori and Ping.
