Hicks, who is heading Biden’s transition team at the Pentagon, served in the Defense Department under former President Barack Obama, including as deputy undersecretary of defence for strategy, plans, and forces.

She is currently at the Center for Strategic and International Studies think tank in Washington.

Biden, who takes office on January 20, also named another civilian, Colin Kahl, who also served in the Obama administration, to a senior Pentagon post.
