The Hon. Sean Stackley is the US Navy’s acquisition executive and is responsible for the research, development, and acquisition of Navy and Marine Corps platforms and warfare systems which includes oversight of more than 100,000 people and an annual budget in excess of $50 billion.

He also advised on Navy and Marine Corps operations and maintenance, science and technology, and acquisition policy.

The Defense-Industrial Policy Series is a platform for senior government executives in defense and aerospace to address the public policies that shape these industries’ markets. By engaging the perspective of government leaders about issues at the interface of defense ministries and industries, the series aims to cultivate a constituency for practical solutions to these problems.
