U.S. Rep. Kay Granger (R-Fort Worth), chair of the Defense Appropriations Subcommittee, has hired retired Navy Capt. Eric Wiese as chief of staff.

Johnnie Kaberle will remain as Granger’s deputy chief of staff and lead on defense appropriations issues. Kaberle has served on Capitol Hill since 1994 and has spent two decades working on National Security and Appropriations issues.

Granger said Wiese brings more than 20 years of leadership as a Navy officer, including service as deputy director of the Navy Appropriations Liaison Office at the Pentagon to her staff.

Wiese graduated from the U.S. Naval Academy in 1990 and holds graduate degrees from the U.S. Naval War College and the U.S. Naval Postgraduate School.

“He has vast experience in forming legislative strategy and in appropriations work. He will be invaluable to my work as we look to increase our investment in defense after years of decline during the Obama administration,” Granger said in a news release.
