Dan Cox was a Senior
Director of Legislative Affairs and Strategy at The Boeing
Company. As Senior Director of Legislative Affairs for Boeing
Government Operations, he developed and coordinated both annual
and long-term congressional authorization strategies in support
of the majority of Boeing defense programs, and led a team
of lobbyists in executing those strategies through effective
advocacy on Capitol Hill. Following that assignment he assumed
the position of Senior Director of Strategy, leading an integrated
process team responsible for the organization and direction
of the company’s advocacy efforts, including outreach to the
Department of Defense, the Congress, non-governmental entities
and the media, in support of Boeing’s prime integrator role
on the Army’s Brigade Combat Team Modernization Program.
Prior to joining Boeing, Cox served for eleven years on the
professional staff of the United States Senate Committee on
Armed Services, doing so following nearly twenty-eight years
of service in the U.S. Army. As a Professional Staff Member,
he was the lead staffer on the Airland Subcommittee, with
jurisdiction for oversight of tactical land and air forces.
In that role he had primary responsibility for oversight of
conventional weapons programs and policy, particularly those
related to U.S. Army and Army National Guard modernization
and force structure. He also served as an advisor to Senator
Carl Levin, Chairman of the Committee, on Iraq policy issues.
A Vietnam and Operation Desert Storm (Persian Gulf War) veteran,
armor officer and aviator, Cox served in a variety of combat
arms command and staff positions in the Army. His last active
duty assignment was as a military advisor to the Department
of State. In that position he directed the Department of State
effort to reorganize the management structure and procedures
of the United Nations' Department of Peacekeeping Operations,
while integrating the corresponding actions of the Department
of Defense, the Joint Chiefs of Staff, the U.S. Agency for
International Development, the U.S. Information Agency, and
the National Security Council. He also taught political science
and international relations as an assistant professor at the
U.S. Military Academy.
A graduate of the U.S. Military Academy at West Point, Cox
also earned Master’s Degrees in Public Administration from
the Harvard University Kennedy School of Government, and in
Business Administration from Long Island University. His other
