is proud to announce that Rear Admiral David Simpson (ret) and Lt Gen Scott Kindsvater (ret) have joined the company as
strategic advisors.
Rear Admiral David Simpson (ret) is a seasoned leader with extensive experience in military operations, systems technology,

emergency management, disaster preparedness and cybersecurity readiness oversight for the telecommunications
industry. He is a respected voice in the national security community, and his expertise will be invaluable to SEMPRE as the
company continues to grow and provide innovative solutions to the most pressing security challenges facing the nation.
“Wireless increasingly underpins the critical infrastructure that make up our Smart Cities. SEMPRE’s focus on the full
spectrum of threats to infrastructure as code and the hardware it relies upon will provide important, cost effective
capabilities for systems needing to be fully functional after a crisis,” says Simpson. “I’m honored to help advise SEMPRE’s
leadership as they develop and implement robust, resilient, clean supply chain communications for our connected future.
Lt Gen Scott Kindsvater (ret) is a retired three-star General from the US Air Force, where he served more than 32 years.
During his career, he held key leadership positions in both the Middle East and in Europe, where he was responsible for
planning and executing complex military operations across a broad range of mission areas. Additionally, he was responsible
for leading Operations and Intelligence in both the Counter/Defeat ISIS campaign and for the NATO Alliance to include the
NATO nuclear enterprise. He has extensive experience in national security operations and is recognized as a leader in the
defense community. Kindsvater's strategic insight and advice will be invaluable to SEMPRE as the company works to
enhance its offerings and capabilities in the rapidly evolving national security landscape.
“I am proud to be joining SEMPRE as Strategic Advisor. The SEMPRE team is expanding the boundaries of innovation in
digital infrastructure in ways that can both help improve NATO combat effectiveness, and also ensure Europe’s
infrastructure is resilient against attack, says Kindsvater.
