On February 28, Beacon Global Strategies (BGS) announced it will be expanding its growing team by adding Peter Hall as senior vice president and Jon Green as associate vice president. In these roles, Hall will provide invaluable insight to the firm’s intelligence practice, while Green will support the firm’s defense practice. Additionally, BGS announced the promotions of Barry King to managing director, Julie Grundman, Ivan Kanapathy, and Louis Lauter to senior vice presidents.

“We’re excited to have Peter and Jon join our BGS team. Their extensive expertise in intelligence and defense will undoubtedly bolster our capabilities, further solidifying our dedication to providing unmatched strategic advisory services to our clients,” stated Andrew Shapiro, managing director at Beacon. “Additionally, we extend our congratulations to Barry, Julie, Ivan, and Louis on their well-deserved promotions.”

Peter Hall recently joined BGS as SVP. Prior to joining Beacon, Hall served as senior director for growth at Peraton, overseeing growth pursuits at the National Security Agency (NSA) across three business units. With nearly four decades of experience in the U.S. Intelligence Community, he held significant roles, including deputy chief of a joint agency program and NSA director’s senior representative to the Department of Defense (DoD). Renowned for his extensive counterterrorism (CT) experience, he served as deputy director of the National Counterterrorism Center (NCTC) and NSA’s chief of the Office of Counterterrorism, where he orchestrated global CT operations. Hall’s career also includes roles as NSA’s most senior representative in a combat zone and acting assistant deputy director, analysis and production. Beginning as a Russia analyst and linguist in the U.S. Army, his exceptional career contributions span critical locations during and after the Cold War, earning him the Presidential Rank Award in 2017.

Jon Green recently joined BGS as AVP. Before joining BGS, Green spent more than eight years working as an advisor and committee staff member on Capitol Hill, most recently serving as the defense policy advisor to Senator Jeanne Shaheen (D-NH). During his tenure on the Hill, he played a pivotal role in the development of nine National Defense Authorization Acts and three annual defense appropriation bills, securing hundreds of millions of dollars for priority defense programs. During his time on Capitol Hill, Green advised senior elected officials on a wide array of international security issues, ranging from Afghanistan to Ukraine, and functional matters such as irregular warfare and information operations. Prior to this, Green worked as a contractor for the Department of Defense in acquisition, technology, and logistics.
