Brian W.

United States

Summary

I enjoy solving complex problems as an internal consultant in the public sector, where I get to use my skills in data analytics, client engagement, and program management as I advise on important national security issues. As a program manager, I enjoy empowering my teams through servant leadership. I have managed programs worth $5M or more and led teams of 80 personnel. As an analyst, I thrive in ambiguous environments with high-pressure clients. I'm an expert at applying structured and logical analytic frameworks to complex problems. In client engagement, I've over-delivered for demanding government agencies, four-star generals, NGO decision makers and special forces clients. My work has saved the lives of tens of thousands of people from terrorist plots. Outcomes of my projects and analyses have steered national policy. My work has been briefed to the President of the United States, the Director of National Intelligence and the Director of Defense Intelligence on multiple occasions. I'm also passionate about justice and human progress while ensuring that the voice of the underserved is at the center of any initiative. I led the welcoming of over 200 Syrian refugees into a German city with no support infrastructure, built a platform connecting U.S. consultants with Kenyan business & non-profit leaders, and performed research and analysis for Mercy Corps. There is the world as it is and the world as it should be. I am relentless in creating the latter, and everything I do is ultimately toward bringing about this vision. I am fluent in Arabic and conversant in French and Spanish.
