Guevara began publishing defense-sector analyses in 1999 and has since held several positions in the public and private sectors, from managing groups from business-intelligence units to state-level law enforcement and working for national security entities. Prior to joining Janes, from 2010 to 2015 Inigo worked as senior analyst for the DC-based public-sector contractor CENTRA Technology, where he gained extensive experience in drafting actionable intelligence products as well as delivering tradecraft training. From 2006 to 2010 Inigo served as advisor and later director of analysis at the Office of the National Security Council/Office of the President of Mexico, where he advised the Mexican government on infrastructure, technology, and equipment options available in the international market. Before this role, Inigo served as chief of statistical analysis at a state-level law enforcement agency in Queretaro, Mexico.
