Beougher will bring demonstrated expertise across all domain logistics, supply chain, public private partnerships and energy services to help lead and grow the company’s operations.

“Guy’s recent assignment as deputy director, DLA Logistics Operations (J3), deputy commander DLA Energy, and acting commander, Energy Major Subordinate Command will also be of tremendous value to our clients,” Halverson added.

Beougher’s experience also includes serving as the force development logistics division chief in Army G-8 and director of the Army Chief of Staff’s Coordination Group and commanding at the Brigade and Battalion level. He retired from the Army as colonel.
