Major General (Ret.) James Champion to Keynote at ESX 2015

The decorated veteran’s address, titled “Leadership Is A 24/7 Job,” will draw from both his civilian and military life

BALTIMORE – Retired U.S. Army Special Forces Officer Major General James “Greg” Champion has signed on to provide the keynote address at the 2015 Electronic Security Expo (ESX), scheduled to be held here June 24-26.

Major General Champion has more than two decades of experience leading the nation’s elite Green Berets in peacetime as well as in the global war on terror. His many distinguished assignments include command of the Combined Joint Special Operations Task Force in Afghanistan in 2002 and 2003.

Champion’s address, titled “Leadership Is A 24/7 Job,” will draw from both his civilian and military life. Attendees will learn what leadership means today and how creating a vision of where you want to go can make all the difference in achieving your goals.

He will also share his experience as the first chairman of the Green Beret Foundation, a veteran service organization dedicated to providing resources to support Green Berets and their families. ESX attendees will learn how they can support the Green Beret Foundation’s transition program, “The “Next Ridgeline,” which focuses on streamlining Green Beret veterans’ re-entry into civilian life.

Green Berets will be on site at ESX to explain how companies and individuals can contribute by donating time or resources. Companies seeking new talent will be provided with the opportunity to conduct employment interviews with technology, operations, and security-savvy Green Berets.

The ESX opening keynote will take place June 25 (11:30 a.m.) during ESX 2015, which will be held at the Baltimore Convention Center. For more information, visit
