Paul Gloyd, former commander of CAP-USAF, has been named assistant chief operating officer at Civil Air Patrol National Headquarters.
A retired U.S. Air Force colonel, Gloyd served for over five years in CAP-USAF, first as vice commander and then as commander. That followed more than 26 years of active Air Force service, which included two command tours, six flying assignments in the T-37, C-5 and CAP’s aircraft, wing chief of safety and three years on the Pentagon’s Joint Staff.
Before assuming his current position as assistant chief operating officer, he served as CAP’s chief of plans and programs on the National Headquarters staff.
Gloyd was enlisted in the Ohio Air National Guard and was a CAP cadet from 1977-1980. He brings a wealth of leadership, management, strategy and process improvement experience to the team and looks forward to working with CAP’s leaders to set the path for tomorrow’s Civil Air Patrol.
