Major General Craig Whelden spent 30 years in the U.S. Army, followed by seven in the private sector, and another nine as a member of the Senior Executive Service (SES) with the U.S. Marine Corps.

Along the way, he led soldiers, sailors, and marines at each level — from lieutenant to General Officer to Senior Executive — while serving 10 years in Europe, and another 12 in the Pacific.

An Armor and Cavalry officer, he commanded a base in Germany as a colonel and, as a brigadier general, oversaw a $1.6B program supporting soldiers and family members world-wide.

Present at the Pentagon on 9/11, he subsequently led the effort to secure the state of Hawaii from terrorist attack, an effort that received national recognition. After retiring from the Army in 2003, he chaired a national conference entitled Information Sharing and Homeland Security for three years.

In 2008, he was asked to organize and run a Secretary of the Army initiative to bring greater awareness to the American public of the sacrifices of servicemembers and their families during a time of war. For this effort, he was recognized by Secretary Pete Geren with the top two awards for civilians.

In 2010, he became the Executive Director for Marine Corps Forces Pacific, overseeing a multi-billion-dollar program to reposition Marines in the Pacific—the largest such effort since World War II.

In 2011, he was inducted into the Purdue University Tri-Service ROTC Hall of Fame.

In October 2019, he transitioned to the next chapter of his life in Bluffton, South Carolina: becoming an award-winning, best-selling author and motivational speaker on leadership and performance excellence.
