Jim Savage brings unparalleled capability and integrity to the security and risk management profession by virtue of his 20+ years in the US Secret Service from which he retired as Deputy Assistant Director. During his career, Jim led complex financial crimes investigations, high consequence threat cases, served on the Vice President’s protective detail, co-authored legislation as a temporary staff member in the Senate Judiciary and helped steer the Secret Service in its transition to the new Department of Homeland Security.
Building upon his government experience, Jim completed 14+ years on the leadership team for Hunt Oil Company in Dallas, a privately owned international organization known and respected for its ability to operate anywhere in the world. Many of the operational venues included extreme technical and security challenges such as Yemen and Northern Iraq that could only be overcome through innovation and cooperation of host government forces forged over time through trust building relationships.
