Vice Admiral Joins Active Crisis Consulting as Managing Director, Board Advisor

Active Crisis Consulting said it delivers security and technology solutions that cater to the diverse needs of government agencies, military, and corporate clients.

Vice Admiral Colin James Kilrain, USN (retired), has joined Dallas-based Active Crisis Consulting as its new managing director and board adviser, bringing with him deep knowledge and experience in national security and global affairs based on his U.S. Naval career spanning nearly four decades.

Kilrain was assistant to the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff from 2021-2023 and associate director for military affairs for the Central Intelligence Agency from 2019-2021. He also was commander of NATO Special Operations Headquarters from 2016-2019, commander of Special Operations Command Pacific, a U.S. Navy SEAL, and commander of Naval Special Warfare Group Two.

Jared Febbroriello, managing director of Active Crisis Consulting, praised Kilrain’s “remarkable career as a Naval leader” that was “forged in fire and earned downrange.” He said Kilrain’s strategic acumen is “an invaluable asset for any organization navigating the Universal Threat Environment.”

In a statement, Febbroriello also highlighted Kilrain’s “expertise in geopolitical security affairs amongst the great powers” and his global operational experience. He said that ACC’s “fundamental long-term acquisitive growth strategy prudently leverages our reputation for attracting world-class talent like Colin; and disruptive technology partners like SEADAR.”

“I cannot overstate the strategic value that Colin’s contributions will bring to ACC and our existing client base,” Febbroriello added.

Active Crisis Consulting delivers security and technology solutions to government agencies, the military, and corporate clients. According to the company, the team is composed of globally recognized experts who have spent their lives in government and military service.

The company said its security and protective service teams aim to ensure client safety in any situation. Its world-class training programs are bespoke and employ emerging technologies, cutting-edge special tactics, and electronic warfare techniques.

The company said that its mission is to prepare clients for the “Universal Threat environment” by providing solutions that redefine the pinnacle of professional, military, and agency requirements.
