In addition to his industry experience, Denny served in various operational, joint, and legislative affairs assignments as a career Army officer (including 11 years at Ft Bragg in both the Division and the Corps), providing him with broad experience within the DoD and associated Corporate communities.

He earned a B.S. in Engineering from the U.S. Military Academy at West Point, an M.S. in Industrial Relations from Purdue University, attended the US Air Force War College, is a Shipley trained Capture Manager, and a Miller-Heiman trained Salesman.

Mr. Lewis is a member of the Association of the U.S. Army, the Armed Forces Communications and Electronics Association, the National Defense Industrial Association and served on their local boards in the Washington DC area before moving to North Carolina in the fall of 2014.
