Hello, Guest!

Executive spotlights are in-depth Q&A’s, where ExecutiveBiz conducts with numerous chief and top-level executives in GovCon.
The access afforded by these interviews helps provide insight as to how companies are acquiring new business, what the future holds and the personal side of corporate leaders.
This past week, ExecutiveBiz published a two-part conversation with Brian Bark, a senior vice president at Mission Critical Partners.
Bark, a former communications operations manager for the City of Pittsburgh’s Safety Department, joined MCP in 2009 after serving as a VP and business development manager at L. Robert Kimball and Associates for 12 years.
In part one, Bark discussed what he called the “disjointed” nature of how public safety agencies at the federal, state and local levels communicated and collaborated with each other prior to 9/11.
He compared that environment to what exists today, where agencies frequently work with each other across different technology platforms during disasters or other crises.
“While recognizing that each jurisdiction has the responsibility to operationally serve their locality and constituents, there is an increased acknowledgment of the need to collaborate, coordinate, and work across political boundaries,” he said.
In part two, Bark previewed some of the technologies MCP is offering to public safety customers for network security and surveillance, among other areas.
“I imagine, in the future, we’ll be leveraging private sector and public sector camera or video capabilities to detect trends from foes,” Bark said.
Bark also offered up MCP’s 13-county emergency network project in Pennsylvania as an example of helping agencies plan together, train together and respond to emergencies together.
Executive Mosaic’s portfolio of more than five media platforms serves to inform executives from across GovCon and the defense sector of the events, people and companies that shape their industry.
ExecutiveBiz is one of EM’s premiere websites and focuses on the news that executives need to know, including alerts on new contracts and industry reports, to conduct and acquire new business.
