ALEXANDRIA, VA — The American Moving & Storage Association (AMSA) announces that John Becker has been promoted to vice president of military policy. Becker serves as a liaison between the moving and storage industry and its largest customer, the U.S. military. Currently he is heavily involved in working with the U.S. Department of Defense on their MyMove prototype system that is being developed to replace the Defense Personal Property System (DPS). As that project winds down, he will assume greater responsibilities within AMSA in other areas.

“In a few short years at AMSA, John has quickly become a key part of our team and is doing a fantastic job representing our industry to the military and our GSA customers. He has become a frequent traveler for the industry as a highly requested presence at numerous industry meetings in addition to his tireless advocacy for the industry in his interactions with government representatives,” said Scott Michael, AMSA president and CEO. “AMSA members have learned that they can depend on John for information about any military-related issue they may have. We’re pleased that he’s found the right home for his post-military career.”

Prior to joining AMSA, Becker served on the HQ Surface Deployment and Distribution Command Staff in the Business Process Management Office and was the Business Process Owner responsible for overseeing the documentation of Personal Property processes. Becker also served as the Personal Property Rates Team Lead, managing the development of the 400NG/International Tender, OTO/Special Solicitation program, and providing Invoice oversight and development of the Annual Rate Filing process.

Becker retired from the U.S. Air Force in 2010 after 20 years serving in various Traffic Management roles at the JPPSO, PPSO and PPPO level, as well as multiple deployments in support of operations worldwide. For more information about AMSA, visit
