Mr. Mahlon Apgar, IV, of Baltimore, Maryland, has led a consulting practice serving major corporations on real estate strategy, systems, re-engineering and facilities management since 1981. From 1968 to 1981, he was affiliated with McKinsey and Company, first as an associate and later as a partner, leading an international practice which advised corporations and government agencies on strategy, organization and management processes. He was also employed by Alex Brown and the Wellington Management Company as a real estate executive. Mr. Apgar's expertise on facilities and real estate led to his involvement as Chair of the Department of the Navy's Task Force, Chair of the Maryland Department of Transportation's Real Estate Advisory Group, Trustee of the Urban Land Institute and Trustee of the National Building Museum. He has edited two books, and authored more than 50 articles on real estate management issues in professional journals, including the Harvard Business Review. He also taught at the Harvard Graduate School of Design.
Mr. Apgar is an ROTC graduate and served in the U.S. Army on active duty from 1962 to 1965, and on reserve duty from 1965 to 1968. He received his MBA from Harvard University in 1968 and his AB from Dartmouth College in 1962. He was a post-graduate student at Oxford University in 1965-66 where he researched British housing policy.
The Assistant Secretary of the Army for Installations, Logistics, and Environment is responsible for three major areas: Army installation management, including design construction, operation, maintenance and repair of Army facilities and housing; logistics readiness, including supply, maintenance, transportation and systems management; and oversight of the Army's environmental conservation, compliance and clean-up programs.
