Homeland Security & Defense Business Council Gains Two New Members

WASHINGTON– The Homeland Security & Defense Business Council announced that two new companies have joined the leading organization representing the interests of the Homeland Security Industrial Base. The Council’s newest members, General Dynamics Mission Systems and REI Systems, provide innovative technology, product, and service solutions to the Homeland Security Enterprise.

“I am thrilled to announce that General Dynamics Mission Systems and REI Systems are now part of the Council family,” said Marc Pearl, President & CEO. “Their capabilities and desire to be a part of our programs and initiatives will be critical to our continued goal to develop strong thought leadership engagement models in support of the government’s homeland security mission.”

“REI Systems is honored to be a part of this premier thought leadership platform to ensure mission impact across the homeland security enterprise,” said John Druitt, Senior Director, Open Government & Public Safety.

Since honoring USCG Commandant Paul F. Zukunft at its Annual Dinner in December, the Council has held its National Conversation on “The Business of Homeland Security” with speakers from the Department of Homeland Security including the Deputy Administrator of TSA, the Director of the DHS Joint Requirements Council, and the Deputy Under Secretary for Management. The Council also released its 3rd annual report as part of its 20/20 Project on the Homeland Security Enterprise.

The Homeland Security & Defense Business Council is a non-partisan, non-profit corporate membership organization that includes the leading large, mid-tier, and small companies who comprise the Homeland Security Industrial Base. Our mission is to build and sustain trusting relationships by facilitating critical industry–government knowledge sharing that helps inform both sectors’ decision-making and improves the way we conduct business together.
