Reston, VA, May 15, 2012 — Blue Canopy announced today the addition of a new partner, retired Brigadier General Michael Lee, U.S. Air Force (Ret.) to the National Security Team. His primary focus will be bringing Blue Canopy’s capabilities in cyber security, program management, and system architecture to DoD and Intelligence Community customers.
Of the move to Blue Canopy, General Lee said “what excites me about Blue Canopy is its wonderful reputation with its customers, who are always pleased with its innovative solutions, mission execution and agility. It reminds me of being back in the front seat of an F-15, where I can control the outcomes in the context of the overall mission.”
Prior to joining Blue Canopy, General Lee worked with both General Dynamics and Lockheed Martin. He retired from the United States Air Force after a 31 year career.
