Managing Director, Tracking Technologies
Clayton has over 28 years’ experience in the U.S. Navy and Department of Defense serving in a variety of senior operational leadership, staff, and advisory roles. He has lived and worked extensively in Europe, the Middle East, and especially Asia. In his current role he leads the BeckWay Groups Tracking Technologies offering and its role in supporting the execution initiatives across the client base.
Clayton’s previous operational experience includes front line command of aviation and intelligence organizations, many of which were either based or deployed overseas in support of combat operations and other national strategic objectives. Through this experience Clayton became an expert at operational efficiency and practical leadership employment – he has turned around several military commands, reducing manning and budgets, while increasing production and operational efficiency.
Clayton holds a B.A. with high distinction in Political Science from the University of Maine, an M.S. in Space Systems (orbital mechanics) from the U.S. Naval Postgraduate School, an M.S. in National Security Strategy from the U.S. National War College, and an MBA (with a concentration in finance) from the University of North Carolina’s Kenan-Flagler’s Business School.
