Stan retired from the Army in 2002 after twenty years of active duty service. Since retirement, he has worked on a variety of data-driven projects including political advocacy, public policy analysis, and economic development efforts surrounding defense investment in states and local communities. Stan joined the Virginia National Defense Industrial Authority as the Military Projects Manager in 2007 and became Executive Director in 2010. He has direct experience understanding BRAC and managing the results of BRAC Commission decisions. He has also personally directed information-gathering efforts intended to protect and grow defense investment in the Commonwealth. Since then Stan has worked on developing Air Force and Army efforts to forge partnerships with other government agencies that create efficiencies and cost savings at the military installation level. He has direct experience with missions and operations at more than 100 Defense Department facilities across CONUS. Since forming Crux Analytics in 2012, Stan has used his knowledge and experience to develop a methodology for quantifying the military value of defense installations according to empirical metrics. This methodology pulls from a broad range of data sources to evaluate the physical infrastructure, electronic spectrum, airspace congestion, local workforce, environmental and encroachment issues, and other factors that support or detract from effective training and operations at military facilities.
