MTN Government (MTNGOV), a MTN Communications subsidiary, announced last week it formed an MTNGOV Advisory Board comprised of intelligence, veteran military and industry business leaders.
The five board members are slated in their post to provide strategic and market guidance to the company.
The appointees bring a diverse array of experience and include George J. Allen, a retired U.S. Marine Corps major general, James Hunt, the co-founder of Blu Venture Investors, N. Lee S. Price, a retired U.S. Army Major General and two U.S. Air Force retirees — General Thomas Verbeck, a former Brigadier General and former Lieutenant General Albert J. ‘Al’ Edmonds.
MTNGOV provides cybersecurity, ISR, intelligence and mobile communications solutions.
“We are fortunate to work with such an esteemed group of military and intelligence community leaders. We will have the benefit of their field-tested advice and counsel to ensure that our satellite, cyber/intelligence and ISR programs are meeting the present and future needs of the U.S. and Allied Nation Governments,” MTNGOV President Peg Grayson said.
Edmonds prior to retiring served as the USAF director of the Defense Information System Agency (DISA) as well as the manager of the National Communications System.
Allen previously served as the director of U.S. Cyber Command’s Plans and Policy.
Price and Verbeck tout 38 years of military and technical leadership experience, respectively, with Price serving as the first female program executive officer for Command Control Communications-Tactical (PEO C3T) and Verbeck leading political and technical tasks for the USAF in more than 92 countries.
Hunt, the sole business executive of the group, founded Ernst & Young Technologies, BDS and the System Integration practice at PricewaterhouseCoopers.
The advisory board, which met for its first official meeting earlier this month, will hold subsequent meetings on a quarterly basis.
