Bauer will lead the delivery of knowledge-based services such as intelligence analysis and language services as well as cyber threat protection services as part of the company’s national security business line, Valiant said Monday.

He will also oversee Valiant’s specialized training services portfolio that includes simulations; manned and unmanned aviation; physical security; coarse development; equipment and defense tactics; and marine and naval operations.

Valiant CEO James Jaska said Bauer, 2016 Wash100 recipient, will help the company grow its business and provide services to clients in support of their missions.
