President Joe Biden intends to nominate Carlos Del Toro, CEO of a tech solutions company and a Cuban-born Navy veteran, to be Navy secretary. The White House plans to make the announcement on Friday, according to two people with direct knowledge.
Del Toro completed the vetting process last week, according to one of the sources. If confirmed by the Senate, Del Toro would be the second Latino person to serve as Navy secretary.
The White House has been considering Del Toro, president and CEO of contractor SBG Technology Solutions and president of the White House Fellows Foundation, for the job since at least April, POLITICO first reported.
