HighPoint Global, a management consultant firm that assists government agencies in training services, recently appointed industry veteran Cal Shintani as its chief growth officer to lead strategy development and merger/acquisition activity.
Previously, Shintani served in a similar capacity at Oceus Networks, CACI, Gray Hawk Systems, BTG, Veridian and Unisys, a HighPoint Global release said.
Shintani said in the release he is excited to join the HighPoint team.
“The work of this team is critical to the government’s transformation to a digital-first enterprise that is responsive to the needs of its constituents,” Shintani said in the release. “I’m looking forward to helping grow the business as well as the influence of the citizen-first mentality practiced by the company.”
Explaining that High Point strives to extend its scope beyond traditional contract experience via system-wide digital upgrading, HighPoint CEO Ben Lanius underscored how Shintani’s capabilities accommodate the company’s goals.
“Cal’s role is to uncover these opportunities to expand our footprint with current customers as well as new ones to further the impact we can have on improving citizen experience with government,” Lanius said in the release.
Shintani graduated from the U.S. Naval Academy, served as a nuclear submarine officer, and earned a master’s degree in national security studies from Georgetown University in Washington, D.C.
