Kris McGuire

HUNTSVILLE — The National Defense Industrial Association (NDIA) announced the appointment of Victory Solutions’ CEO and Founder, Kris McGuire as a new member of the NDIA Board.

“Victory Solutions’ position as a leader in defense, technology, and aerospace continues to reinforce the integrity of our national security. I am honored to have the opportunity to join the NDIA board and will work diligently to help
advance the dialogue critical to ensuring tomorrow’s prosperity,” said Kris McGuire, founder and CEO of Victory Solutions.

NDIA is America’s leading defense industry association promoting national security, providing a legal and ethical forum for the exchange of information between industry and government on national security issues. NDIA and its members foster the development of the most innovative and superior equipment, training, and support for warfighters and first responders through its divisions, local chapters, affiliated associations, and events.

“NDIA is committed to its mission of serving the warfighter with a strong, productive defense industrial base. These 16 new board members are selflessly giving NDIA their time and interests to see this mission through, and we welcome their rich, objective, nonpartisan dialogue,” Punaro said. Retired Major General Arnold Punaro, CEO of The Punaro Group LLC of Washington, is chairman of the Board.

As a Service-Disabled Veteran-Owned (SDVO) and Woman-Owned Small Business (WOSB), Victory Solutions is a multiple award-winning company specializing in building relationships with defense and commercial customers to develop, analyze, and integrate advanced aerospace systems.

National Defense Industrial Association Chairman Arnold Punaro announced the selection of McGuire and 15 other new board members earlier this month. They include:
