About the Author

The Honorable Dave Oliver, Jr. learned leadership in the military and corporate worlds (he is a retired Rear Admiral). Dave aquired his Washington knowledge in five separate jobs. He has worked both with and for political appointees, and has personally served as a Senate-confirmed nominee for Republican and Democratic Administrations.

"Dave Oliver offers us a perspective that is unique for Washington. During his 35 years of professional life, he has seen public service at every level. His last four years were at the top, but he remembers the pressures and challenges of every level. This experience provides a remarkable perspective that is fresh and helpful to all those who serve the country in public office."

- The Honorable John Hamre, Former Deputy Secretary of Defense
