Admiral William Fallon
Four-star Admiral, Chairman of Cyber security Company CounterTack
Four-star Admiral and Chairman of cybersecurity company CounterTack, William “Fox” Fallon was the first Navy officer to head US Central Command. Former Secretary of Defense Robert Gates called him “one of the best strategic thinkers in uniform.”
Adm. Fallon led U.S. and Allied forces in eight separate commands at the highest levels of American government before retiring after 41 years of leadership. As Commander of US Central Command from 2007 to 2008, Adm. Fallon led U.S. military forces in the Middle East, Central Asia, and Africa and was instrumental in the turnaround of the ground situation in Iraq. He promoted active communication between governments while in command of the Asia-Pacific and Middle East regions. During his tenure as Commander of the U.S. Pacific Command, he promoted stronger military-to-military relations between the U.S. and China.
He applies his experience in international security, political, and commercial affairs to his current role as chairman of CounterTack, Inc., a cybersecurity company. His years in the military helped shape his understanding of the rising need for cybersecurity to protect sensitive communications and critical assets and reinforced his commitment to an active response to cyber threats.
