Annual Dinner

The Council’s 2018 Annual Dinner was a truly special opportunity to celebrate the work done by the public and private sectors in support of the homeland security mission. We were honored to present our Government-Industry Engagement Award to Executive Assistant Director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI)’s Science & Technology Branch, Christopher Piehota, for his and his team’s incredible efforts to pursue what Chris has called “fruitful partnerships with the private sector.”

The evening also marked a transition in Council leadership, as we welcomed our new Board Chair, M. John Saad, a partner and the National Security Sector leader at Guidehouse. We are beyond privileged to enter the Council’s 15th year under John’s guidance.
