Four-Star General Barry R. McCaffrey Joins Juvare Board of Directors
Juvare LLC, the leader in enhanced situation awareness and common operational picture software, announced today that retired U.S. Army General Barry R. McCaffrey has joined the organization’s board of directors. The appointment of General McCaffrey will provide guidance as Juvare expands its leading role as a program of record across the federal and defense space.
“We couldn’t be more excited to have General McCaffrey join the board at Juvare,” said Bob Watson, President and CEO of Juvare. “As a highly decorated general, his reputation, experience, and service to our country will be enormously helpful to our decision making. General McCaffrey’s appointment to our board is a clear signal of our commitment to the warfighter as we further expand our capabilities with joint domain data sharing through Juvare Exchange and push the bounds of what is possible by creating the next generation of WebEOC Command and Control (C2). We believe we are well positioned to support DoD leadership and bridge the gap between critical support functions and warfighter operations with this appointment and support from our new investor, Five Arrows.”
Upon his board appointment with Juvare, General McCaffrey said, “Situational awareness is the driver of effective command and control and is critical to decisive response and mission assurance. With the inherent risks and challenges associated with the COVID-19 pandemic, national security threats, and natural disasters facing our country, every minute counts. The ability to make strategic data-based decisions in real-time is the key to protecting people and mission-critical assets. Juvare has proven itself a leader in the space, and I’m honored to join such a credible and forward-thinking organization.”
General McCaffrey is president of his own consulting firm, BR McCaffrey Associates. He also serves as a national security and terrorism analyst for NBC News.
