Slovenia’s government appointed Alenka Ermenc as Slovenia army’s chief-of-staff, making her the first woman amongst NATO countries to hold that post. Ermenc, who was until today the deputy head of Slovenian army, is a veteran of Slovenia’s war in 1999 She has been employed by the army for 27 years and was promoted to the rank of major general last week. She will today replace Alan Geder as the army’s head. In her military career, the 55-year-old Ermenc also served in Kosovo as part of KFOR from June to December 2009. She was promoted to the rank of brigadier in 2011, and in March this year she was appointed deputy chief of general staff. Slovenia’s president Borut Pahor, the commander-in-chief of the nation’s armed forces, said in a press release: “General Major Alenka Ermenc meets all the criteria, she has vast leadership experience, and has demonstrated resolute in conducting the duties required.” Slovenia’s armed forces comprise a little more than 7,000 troops, one sixth of whom are women.
