Why did you join Horizon Strategies?

I desired to be a part of a service oriented, values based company whose vision, goals, culture and people were framed in unquestionable character and integrity, and espoused and valued teamwork.


What did you do prior to your career with Horizon Strategies?

I served the nation for 30 years in the U.S. Army - leading, directing and inspiring diverse, complex organizations, to include three combat tours of duty. I had the honor and pleasure of serving with and for some of America’s best – our Soldiers, Noncommissioned Officers and Officers of the United States Army, while commanding at the battalion and brigade level.  Most recently, prior to joining Horizon Strategies, I served as the Deputy Commandant at the United States Military Academy, having the privilege of mentoring and developing our future Army leaders.
