About the series
The Captains of Industry Series is a platform for senior defense executives to address the public interests their companies serve and the public policies that shape their markets. By engaging the perspective of business leaders about issues at the interface of defense ministries and industries, the series aims to cultivate a constituency for practical solutions to these challenges. Past events include a discussion on redefining leadership with SAIC CEO Nazzic Keene and an exploration of the unremarked story of the aerospace industry’s role in the Apollo program.
