Jeff Hathaway is a veteran of 33 years of Coast Guard service, retiring in 2007. He is currently the vice president of Flatter & Associates, Inc., a Service Disabled Veteran Owned Small Business, providing a broad array of professional services support to federal government customers. Jeff previously served as vice president of Washington Operations for L-1 Identity Solutions, a leading supplier of multi-biometric technologies and secure credentialing solutions, where he was instrumental in translating the biometric and identity management requirements in the national defense, homeland security and law enforcement arenas into effective solutions. Jeff also maintains his own private national & homeland security consulting firm, Security Shield Associates.
During his military career, Jeff most recently led the Nation's premier international counter-narcotics effort as Director of Joint Interagency Task Force South in Key West, FL. Coordinating the efforts of Department of Defense, Department of Homeland Security and Department of Justice resources, as well as over a dozen international partner nations, he more than doubled the annual amount of cocaine seized while enroute to U.S. and international markets. Hathaway received broad recognition, for those achievements, including the Organized Crime and Drug Enforcement Task Force "Director's Award", sponsored by the Secretary of Treasury, Secretary of Homeland Security and the U.S. Attorney General.
While assigned as Director of Anti-Terrorism and Force Protection on the Navy Pentagon staff, as well as Assistant Director of the Naval Criminal Investigative Service, from 2001-2003, Hathaway deftly executed a $1 billion dollar annual budget to quickly enhance the Navy's force protection posture around the world in the wake of the USS Cole bombing and the attacks of 9/11. Serving as Director of Coast Guard Operations Policy from 2003-2004, Hathaway managed a broad array of missions, including maritime law enforcement, homeland security and defense operations, search and rescue and national boating safety. He also served as a spearhead of efforts to integrate Coast Guard operations into the Department of Homeland Security. Admiral Hathaway has extensive seagoing operational experience, including command of three major cutters, performing search and rescue, defense operations and maritime law enforcement missions from the Bering Sea to the southern Caribbean Sea. Duties included serving as maritime task force commander during two mass Haitian migration episodes. He also headed the Coast Guard's Congressional and Legislative Affairs Staff from 1996-1999 as well as serving as executive director of the U.S. Interdiction Coordinator staff from 1999-2001.
Hathaway received a BS in economics from the U.S. Coast Guard Academy in 1974, and also holds an MBA from the University of California at Irvine Paul Merge School of Business, as well as a MS in National Resource Strategy from the Industrial College of the Armed Forces. He resides in Centreville, Virginia with his spouse, Becky, who served in the Navy Nurse Corps for twenty-nine years. They have four grown children.
