Capt. Brett A. St. George graduated from the U.S. Naval Academy in 1997 with a Bachelor of Science in Electrical Engineering. He earned a Master of Business Administration from the Fuqua School of Business at Duke University in 2008 through the Fleet Scholar Education Program.
After completing flight training in 1999, St. George began his career as a naval aviator and logged 800 flight hours in the CH-46 Sea Knight with Helicopter Combat Support Squadron (HC) 5 in Guam. He deployed twice with the 31st Marine Expeditionary Unit aboard USS Essex (LHD 2) and USS Belleau Wood (LHA 3), participating in operations and amphibious exercises in Japan, Korea, and Thailand, including exercise Cobra Gold.
During a tour at the U.S. Naval Academy as the course coordinator for the freshman core leadership class, he redesignated as a Human Resources (HR) officer.
His HR assignments include service as statistics and allocation branch head in PERS-45, Navy Personnel Command (NPC) in Millington, Tennessee, where he was awarded the 2010 Admiral Jeremy M. Boorda award for integration of analysis and policy making for his permanent-change-of-station modeling efforts. As commanding officer of Naval Technical Training Center Meridian, he led the conversion of “A” school curriculums for logistics specialist, yeoman, personnel specialist, and ship’s serviceman ratings from self-paced courses to more traditional lock-step delivery. He completed another tour at NPC as the HR active component detailer for 400+ constituents, developing and adopting a market-based approach to detailing that became a central tenant for simulating competitive labor markets within the assignment and distribution process. He also served as the PERS-34 deputy director for metrics and analytics. His last tour was as the chief for joint strength management/J13 at U.S. Northern Command.
St. George became commanding officer of Naval Education and Training Professional Development Center in Pensacola, Florida, in October 2019.
