Capt. Phillipe Grandjean, outgoing commander, renders a salute as he walks through the side boys during the change of command ceremony.   “The partnership between NAVSUP FLC Puget Sound, the community, its partner government organizations at the local, state, and federal levels, and civic leaders, is a special one; and one that has existed for many years. I know that these relationships have grown during Capt. Grandjean’s time here,” said Haven. Grandjean took the helm in September 2016 and led the command’s military and civilian workforce with an emphasis on fleet support and customer service. “We have constantly looked for ways to do better for our customers and we have taken great strides in terms of improving fleet support,” said Grandjean. “It has been an honor to serve as commanding officer,” he said.
