Arlington, VA (PRWEB) September 26, 2017
METIS Solutions, LLC announced today the appointment of Dr. Mike Vickers as an independent member of its Board of Directors.
“We are honored to have Mike Vickers on our team,” says METIS CEO Michael Waltz.
Dr. Vickers has devoted his life to public service, bringing 42 years of total experience as a Green Beret, a CIA paramilitary operations officer, and a high-ranking Pentagon official to the table. He served as the head military strategist for the United States during the Soviet war in Afghanistan, when he notably provided direction to forces made up of over 500,000 Afghan forces and coordinating the effort with ten countries. This incredible feat has been noted in books, documentaries, and movies such as the 2007 award-winning film, “Charlie Wilson’s War”. In addition to his Special Operations Forces experience, Vickers had policy oversight of all strategic forces (nuclear weapons, missile defense, space, cyber), conventional force transformation (air, ground and maritime), and wrote the defense planning guidance to direct all defense capability investments.
“Dr. Vickers’ service as the Assistant Secretary of Defense for Special Operations and Low Intensity Conflict and Interdependent Capabilities coupled with his time as the Under Secretary of Defense for Intelligence is perfect to guide METIS as it expands its services to Special Operations Command and the intelligence community,” says METIS President Chris Wynes.
