What are you responsible for as the director of Business Development for the Department of Army at LMI?
I pinpoint some of the Army senior leaders’ toughest and most complex challenges and align LMI capabilities and subject matter experts to solve them.

How long did you serve in the United States Army and what was your role/MOS?
I served in the U.S. Army for 30 years, where I began my career as an armor officer. I am proud to have commanded the 194th Armor Training Brigade at Fort Benning, served as the director of the Mission Command Capability Development Integration Division at Fort Leavenworth, and acted as the Army Futures Command Task Force chief of staff prior to retiring last summer.

What made you decide to work at LMI after serving our country for so many years?
When asked advice about the transition from the military, I tell people to pick “with whom” first and “what” later. The learning environment and the quality of people at LMI attracted me. With LMI, I am part of a professional and quality group just like the profession of arms that I had in the Army. Everyone here is top shelf.

What synergies do you see between LMI and the way the Army operates?
Like the Army, LMI operates with a similar people empowerment philosophy. As a leader, you are given latitude to accomplish the mission; however, our structure fosters teamwork for success. Thus, you learn to work together quickly and trust your team.

Of your many accomplishments of serving as a leader in the United States Army, what makes you the most proud?
I was proud to be part of the Army’s transformation of our future force modernization enterprise through Army Futures Command. But I take the most pride in watching soldiers that I served with continue to aid our great nation in senior leadership positions.
