Olson was the longest serving SEAL on active duty prior to his retirement, the first SEAL to command USSOCOM, and both the first three-star and the first four-star SEAL.
He was awarded the Silver Star for his actions in the battle of Mogadishu in 1993.
“I am honored that Adm. Olson has joined our board of advisors, ” said MEP CEO Chris Taylor. “He has dedicated his life to the security of the United States, ensuring that all people have the opportunity to live freer, safer and more prosperous lives.”
“His incomparable knowledge of global affairs will help MEP better understand the interdependencies of a complex world and drive our growth strategy toward creating shared value and solving seemingly intractable problems.”
