Five former government officials with military and intelligence leadership experience have joined the 2021 class of advisory board members at Herndon, Virginia-based geospatial analytics company HawkEye 360.
HawkEye 360 said Tuesday its newly appointed advisers are Kevin Chilton, a retired U.S. Air Force general; Scott Swift, a retired U.S. Navy admiral; Lynn Wright, former deputy director of naval intelligence; Stephanie O’ Sullivan, former principal deputy director of national intelligence; and Mac Thornberry, a former Republican representative of Texas’ 13th district.
Chilton previously led the U.S. Strategic Command for more than three years prior to his retirement from the Air Force in February 2011. He currently serves as the president of consulting firm Chilton & Associates.
Swift, a four-decade Navy veteran, is the founder of professional services company The Swift Group.
Wright holds more than 34 years of intelligence community experience and previously served as the Navy’s representative to the IC.
O’Sullivan worked the CIA as associate deputy director and also served on the board of Huntington Ingalls Industries (NYSE: HII).
Thornberry chaired the House Armed Services Committee from 2015 to 2019 and retired last year after 26 years of congressional career.
