David Mayhan

Dave embodies the approach of this firm in that he is expert both in planning and execution. He began his professional career as an officer in the United States Marine Corps, serving in a variety of locations and environments.  Dave enjoyed extensive experience consulting to combined joint task forces (multi-service and multi-national) around the world in process improvement and operations management. His final assignment was to San Bruno, California, where he served as the operations officer and chief of staff for a regiment of 4500 personnel dispersed across the US. He retired as a Lieutenant Colonel, and immediately sought mission-driven opportunities in the private sector.
