The former director of the Defense Intelligence Agency, Army Lt. Gen. Robert Ashely, has joined the consulting firm Deep Water Point as a principal. He’ll support the company’s defense and intelligence business.
Ashely retired from as director of DIA in 2020 and had a 36-year military career that included leadership positions in operational combat, intelligence, global security, cybersecurity and risk management.
Deep Water Point has a track record of recruiting top civilian and military leaders to its consulting practice, including deputy commanding generals, the commanding general of the Army Special Operations Command and the former chief of staff of U.S. Cyber Command.
"Providing exceptional service to our clients requires us to recruit and sustain the best people industry and government have to offer," said Howard Seeger, Deep Water Point's managing partner, in a press release. "General Ashley will be joining a very strong team of former senior government, military, and industry executives who understand the market and provide real value to our clients.”
