The changing of the cards

This past month, we welcomed Bill Eldard to the Simon Everett team. We’d already worked alongside Bill on a previous project when he operated under a different corporate banner, and we’re very pleased to add his expertise and camaraderie to our own squad.   

Bill is representing us at the strategic level of the Intelligence Community (IC), where he supports initiatives to improve the effectiveness and transparency of information sharing policies and processes with IC partners. He’s able to draw upon decades of experience supporting defense and intelligence activities, to include serving more than 20 years in the U.S. military, where he began in the Army and retired as a Commander in Naval Intelligence. Over the past 15 years, he has served in a variety of consulting roles to support intelligence production, operational and strategic planning, policy analysis, and interagency information sharing.    

Just as importantly, Bill is a true professional while making the workday more lighthearted for his colleagues. He also adds much depth to our team’s knowledge of strategy games both old and new – so we’ll be careful about initiating internal contests!

Welcome aboard, Bill!

Upgrading our trial account (aka welcome aboard, Vineet!)

Working with a company on a per-project basis is a great way to demonstrate that you have the talent and cultural compatibility that warrant full-time employment. So when we recently advertised an opening for the position of Research Analyst, our former consultant Vineet Surapaneni seized the opportunity to cement his role with us and submitted his application. As a consultant, Vineet had already impressed us with his drive, demeanor, and discipline. But in a crowd of 350 outstanding applicants, Vineet further distinguished himself throughout the course of a rigorous interview process to earn the position.

Vineet’s employment comes on the heels of our support to the Broadcasting Board of Governors, a project on which he served as the lead analyst. In that role, he analyzed content produced by 30 Arabic-language news channels to help define the client’s value proposition in the Middle East media market and identify opportunities for differentiation. During that time, Vineet also completed a research internship at the Institute for the Study of War, where he contributed to the think tank’s analysis of rapidly changing battlefield dynamics in Syria.

A (triple!) graduate of the University of Texas at Austin with a BA in Economics, Political Science, and Arabic Language and Literature, Vineet was awarded a competitive fellowship by the Center for Arabic Study Abroad (CASA), administered by Harvard University’s Center for Middle Eastern Studies.

We’re excited to have Vineet join our team, where he’ll provide research, analysis, business development, and administrative support to internal and client-facing initiatives. Welcome (officially) to the family, Vineet!
