Rising from enlisted ranks to Captain, Jim Dale retired from the Royal Navy in March 2004 following a service of 39 years in operations across the world, including the 1982 Falkland’s War, several Persian Gulf operations, and long spells in the North Atlantic during the Cold War. He spent much of his last 10 years of service in Washington, DC, on the British Embassy staff and on USN exchange service on the Chief of Naval Operations staff.
Following his naval career, Jim joined Titan Corporation as the Director of Strategic Operations and Deputy VP & GM, also assuming Program Management responsibilities for many efforts including Ship Construction Navy, Space Communications, and Serious Organized Crime Agency (London, UK). L-3 acquired Titan and Jim became VP & GM for C4ISR Services. In 2011, this and other groups were spun-off to form Engility Corporation and Jim became the Business Area Director of Navy Programs, and subsequently VP & GM of the Engineering and Program Management Group, a $600M+ operation with 2,400 employees in over 1,000 programs across the DoD for Navy, Marine Corp, Army and Air Force. Jim left Engility and accepted a position with Cortek, Inc. as the VP Corporate and Strategic Development.
Jim attended the Royal Navy Staff College, the Royal Navy Engineering College, Manchester University Advanced Management Business School, UK, and has a Masters in Information Security from Westminster University, London, UK.
