In a quest to find, capture and win a project there are many people who play specific roles. Every organization is different but yet the same in many ways. Those similarities always influence how we do things, the sequence of events, and the resources invested. Of all the people who are trying to land the big fish we sometimes don’t consider when to include the Project Manager. He or she is often a commodity that’s pulled in many directions and seemingly just as difficult to land as the fish itself. So when exactly should a PM show up for work? Where’s that “must have” point in the process? Why then? What are the risks and who’s really on the hook? Well, it depends on who you ask. We’ll explore the answers which may surprise you and of which may make a difference in how you arrive at decisions in your organization.

Mr. Dowling has developed and managed large integrated programs, as well as, facilitated strategic partnerships, alliances and multi-vertical pursuits. He leads and serves with intent; bringing relevant experience, reputation and expedient upside results to near-to-midterm challenges facing public policies, and domestic and int’l institutions.
Mr. Dowling served as a career naval officer before retiring in the rank of Commander. Distinguished assignments included Special Assistant to the US Vice President; and as a Senior Program Manager at the Defense Threat Reduction Agency leading tier-one analytic, R&D and technology-applied programs; the results of which had Executive Branch bearing on Service-level policies, appropriations, and new relations with developing nations and NGOs. In the private sector, Mr. Dowling led double-digit profitability managing $90M+ P&L lines of business, achieved 80%-win rate of $5B for new company-wide business across a diversity of markets, and provided strategic advisory services to non-US companies and public sectors to increase revenues and stabilize governance. In C-Suite roles, he’s established PPPs, JVs, leveraged VCs and M&As, and reversed high-risk distributed organizations in revenue deficit or cost overrun positions while improving enterprise-scale performance, market penetration and brand reputation.
Career examples include: as a homeland security Account Manager for Pacific Region at SAIC, Mr. Dowling led a then first-ever consortium of business units introducing new, smart technologies and impact strategies to mitigate broad post-911 vulnerabilities facing US Territories and Partner Nations. As a Senior PM at Lockheed Martin, led distributed organizations delivering solutions for port, maritime security (ports, watercraft) & coastal fixed-array surveillance, offshore energy & environment protection, agile infrastructure, and secure logistics capabilities across five continents – 20 countries. As a VP, Mr. Dowling facilitated PPPs in Croatia, Americas and SE Asia to resource and manage compliant maritime trade, communication, energy security & surveillance capabilities that lowered risk, increased public revenues. For the US Gov’t, Mr. Dowling led a comprehensive assessment of US counter-illicit trafficking (land, air, sea, rivers) and cyber-threat activities in Central & South America; the findings and recommendations of which shaped much of today’s related special operations programs.

His stewardship within the C-Suite leverages such changing market demand signals, investor expectations and tech convergence that favor exemplary leaders of broader experience and practical exposure to shape strategy, establish effective market presence and achieve higher profitability.
Mr. Dowling’s experience extends from mature countries to fragile states with credentials further codified from testimony before congressional sub-committees, as a frequent speaker at int’l forums, and featured contributor to various media.
