the world in a career that bridged both covert technical and human intelligence operations. He continues actively consulting in retirement on international intelligence, security, and risk challenges faced by multinational corporations operating in some of the world’s most hostile regions. Charles’ experience offers unique value for the business traveler that must, out of necessity, venture into “Indian country.” His perspective is one drawn from years working in the trenches of the third world, rather than the relative comfort of a Washington office.
Charles has authored and published numerous white papers on the security threat and business risk, and is an acknowledged expert in the area of terrorism and radicalization. He lectures regularly at universities and business groups on this, and other security and intelligence-related topics. Charles has worked abroad in India, Africa, Central and South America, Europe, and the Middle East with personal extensive experience in crisis management and evacuation of facilities and personnel on numerous occasions. His expertise has been solicited by national media, both broadcast and print.
