The Department of the Navy has awarded the Civilian Service Commendation Medal to IWP alumnus Elias Stamatiades, thanks to “the superior performance of his duties while serving as a PWD ROTA Supervisory Contract Specialist from 2015 to 2020.”
During this time, Elias executed 600 contract actions worth $120 million. One of his most significant accomplishments involved the relocation of a helicopter squadron to new hangars. Another involved increasing the responsiveness of ship support services for our forward deployed U.S. Navy destroyer ships homeported at Naval Station Rota, Spain.
Elias received a Certificate of Graduate Study from IWP in 2000 and an M.A. in Statecraft and National Security Affairs in 2015.
