General Riccardo Marchiò – Initial Staff Address

Brunssum, the Netherlands – General Riccardo Marchiò, Commander JFC Brunssum, addressed his staff today for the first time.
The General thanked his predecessor, General Salvatore Farina, for the work he has done over the past two years, especially with regard to NATO’s Resolute Support mission (RSM) in Afghanistan, the evolution of the NATO Response Force (NRF) and, more recently, the successful deployment of the enhanced Forward Presence (eFP) Battle Groups in northern Europe.
Looking to the future the General stated that, under his guidance, the emphasis for his tenure will be continuity.  There will be no radical change but, rather, a continued effort to guide and refine the broad spectrum of work at JFC Brunssum.
In closing his remarks General Marchiò underlined that mission command (the philosophy whereby a military leader outlines his intent for his staff to execute) would be a central element to his leadership approach and he will work to establish an environment of mutual trust where work and family life are in balance.
