Command Senior Enlisted Leader Change of Responsibility

Brunssum, The Netherlands – on 29th June, the Commander of JFC Brunssum, General Guglielmo Luigi Miglietta, presided over a ceremony marking the change of responsibility for the Headquarters' Command Senior Enlisted Leader (CSEL).

The CSEL is the principal advisor to the Commander on matters affecting non-commissioned members (NCM) of our military staff. He or she is also responsible for NCM and junior officer development.

CWO Lance Dunn prepares to hand over the CSEL pace stick to General Miglietta, JFCBS Commander, who then hands it over to the incoming CSEL CPO 1 Ryan. 

During the ceremony, the role of CSEL formally transferred to Chief Petty Officer 1st Class (CPO 1) Stanley Ryan of the Royal Canadian Navy. The outgoing CSEL, Chief Warrant Officer (CWO) Lance Dunn, Canadian Army, made the following remarks:

I consider it an honour to have had the privilege of serving Canada alongside the Non-Commissioned Officers, Officers and Civilians of NATO Allied and Partner Nations here at JFC Brunssum. I can say with certainty that it is our diversity that makes us so strong as an Alliance. Our different national, cultural and gender perspectives enable us – as one team – to come to better solutions and deliver far greater results.

General Miglietta thanked CWO Dunn for his service to NATO and wished him luck on his return to Canada. The General highlighted the importance of this unique position, and how challenging a role it is in a multinational environment.


Finally, General Miglietta offered a warm welcome to CPO 1 Ryan, wishing him as much success in the CSEL position as CWO Dunn achieved over the past three years.
