HOUSTON, Texas – October 21, 2014 – Triangle Performance, LLC today announced that Kevin Ross has joined the organization as Managing Consultant.
“Kevin Ross is a highly respected consultant in both defense and corporate arenas,” said Kevin Berchelmann, Triangle Performance CEO. “We are excited—and honored–that Kevin has joined our team; his leadership acumen and depth of expertise will certainly have a direct, positive impact on our clients’ leadership strategies and workforce success.”
A decorated 27-year United States Air Force veteran, Ross served his country as a command pilot, group commander, and Pentagon special operations/counterterrorism advisor. His unique experience within the United States Air Force afforded him the privilege of leading small cross-functional teams, flying squadrons, and a one-of-a-kind 450-person Contingency Response Group. In his consulting roles working with the Joint Chiefs of Staffs and in the Office of the Secretary of Defense, he worked closely with senior level Defense officials to develop and implement structured, high-integrity leadership strategies to create engaged organizational cultures and ultimately drive highly successful results.
From leadership and strategy development, to individualized coaching and performance improvement, Ross has been a trusted advisor to senior Defense Department officials– including the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff and most recently the Under Secretary for Intelligence.
“I’m very excited to join Triangle Performance and bring the knowledge and strategies I’ve developed throughout my military and defense careers to client organizations,” said Ross. “I’ve seen first-hand the impact that leadership and vision can have on an organization, and I’m thrilled to have the opportunity to work with client executives to develop and implement engaging, productive, high-performance leadership.”
While Ross is hesitant to discuss his achievements, in 2013 he was awarded the Secretary of Defense Award for Excellence and the President’s Award for his work through SRA International, Inc. SRA’s Group Director highlighted the significance of this award when he said, “…this would be a significant achievement for any DoD member, uniformed or civilian, but it is even more unique and a truly extraordinary accomplishment for a contract consultant.”
Kevin Ross was commissioned in the United States Air Force in 1983 and retired as a Colonel. He holds a Bachelor of Science degree in Aerospace Engineering from Texas A&M University, an MBA from the University of South Carolina, and an MS in National Resource Strategy from the National Defense University, where he was recognized as a Distinguished Graduate. He plans to relocate with his family from the National Capital Region to the Austin, Texas area in the spring.
