I’m a devoted husband, proud father and grandfather, and man of faith. I hold an MBA from The George Washington University (1995), a BS in Accounting with a minor in Computer Science from Western New Mexico University (1984). I retired a U.S. Naval Officer in 1999, having served onboard a nuclear attack submarine during the Cold War, aboard a surface ship during Operations Desert Shield and Desert Storm, as well as completing a tour in the Pentagon on the Navy staff.
After retiring from the Navy I founded the management consulting firm, Coker Logistics Solutions, achieving Inc. 5000 status in 2007 and was recognized as the 2012 Northrup Grumman Supplier of the Year from a field of over 10,000 suppliers. In 2005 I founded Coker Logistics Solutions, UK Ltd, a logistics planning and analysis firm, based in Bath, England.
I am a public speaker, having lectured and presented at various academic venues, conferences and trade shows in Canberra, Sydney, Singapore, Madrid, Berlin, Jerusalem, London, and many U.S. cities including Washington, DC.
I am an author, currently working on my first business book, BUSINESS AS LIFE, planned for release in 2018.
