Distinguished assignments included Special Assistant to the US Vice President; and as a Senior Program Manager at the Defense Threat Reduction Agency leading tier-one analytic, R&D and technology-applied programs; the results of which had Executive Branch bearing on Service-level policies, appropriations, and new relations with developing nations and NGOs. In the private sector, Mr. Dowling led double-digit profitability managing $90M+ P&L lines of business, achieved 80%-win rate of $5B for new company-wide business across a diversity of markets, and provided strategic advisory services to non-US companies and public sectors to increase revenues and stabilize governance. In C-Suite roles, he’s established PPPs, JVs, leveraged VCs and M&As, and reversed high-risk distributed organizations in revenue deficit or cost overrun positions while improving enterprise-scale performance, market penetration and brand reputation.

Career examples include: as a homeland security Account Manager for Pacific Region at SAIC, Mr. Dowling led a then first-ever consortium of business units introducing new, smart technologies and impact strategies to mitigate broad post-911 vulnerabilities facing US Territories and Partner Nations. As a Senior PM at Lockheed Martin, led distributed organizations delivering solutions for port, maritime security (ports, watercraft) & coastal fixed-array surveillance, offshore energy & environment protection, agile infrastructure, and secure logistics capabilities across five continents – 20 countries.
