The European Defence Agency is pleased to announce the appointment of Air Commodore Pete Round as the Capability Director.

A highly experienced officer, he joined the RAF as an officer in 1979, before reading Metallurgy at Manchester University. After qualifying as a RAF pilot, he flew Buccaneers in the maritime strike attack role. Since then, he has served several tours at the Ministry of Defence, working variously on Arms Control, International Defence Relations Policy and UK/US cooperation; in Saudi Arabia, commanding  the detachment delivering Air Operations over Southern Iraq; and at UK Permanent Joint Headquarters, where he led the Operations Teams, at different times, for UK Operations in Afghanistan, the Balkans and all UK-supported UN Operations. Later he served as UK National Liaison Representative to NATO Supreme Allied Commander Transformation in Norfolk, Virginia, and in numerous flight instruction roles, culminating most recently in his role as the Assistant Director Flying Training with responsibility to Director Flying Training for all aspects of pre-Operational Conversion Unit flying training for the Royal Navy, Army and Royal Air Force, as well as the introduction of the United Kingdom Military Flying Training System, a multi-billion Euro Private Finance Initiative to deliver flying training capability.

During his tenure, Air Commodore Round will focus on driving forward Pooling & Sharing. He said “I am very excited to be joining the Agency, especially at such a crucial time for our defence. With my European colleagues, I’ll be working tirelessly to deliver tangible results on major capabilities projects.”
