preparedness for Alion Science and Technology, will provide consultation to the association on matters concerning homeland security as it relates to the nation's highways.
He has served as a consultant for a variety of agencies and organizations on national security matters throughout his career. He is also the author of "Red Teaming: The Don L. Rondeau Method," which chronicles his creation of an anti-terrorism development methodology to identify potential terrorist tactics and targets.
"I plan to advise and support the association leaders in identifying opportunities that keep the driver community engaged in the security discussion," said Rondeau. "I believe it's vitally important to capitalize on the vast experience and knowledge of the professional driver."
