Joint Forces Command appoints new Director of Overseas Bases

Alison Stevenson has been appointed as the first Director of Overseas Bases. Since May 2015 she has been the Director Head Office in the Ministry of Defence (MOD), responsible for the financial and corporate management of the Head Office, and is also the Gender Champion for the MOD.

Commander of Joint Forces Command General Chris Deverell welcomed Alison Stevenson as the first Director of Overseas Bases, saying: “I am delighted to announce Alison’s appointment as the new Director of Overseas Bases.

Speaking on her appointment, Ms Stevenson said: “It’s fantastic to be joining Joint Forces Command at a time when our Overseas Bases, and the people who work in them, have never been more important in projecting our global military influence as well as contributing to regional security and Global Britain. I join an excellent team and look forward to working with them.”
