Atlanta entrepreneur among five new Trustees elected to join the Foundation’s Board this year
ATLANTA, Georgia — October 2, 2018 — Insight Sourcing Group is proud to announce the election of its founder and CEO, Tom Beaty, to the Army War College Foundation’s Board of Trustees. Beaty is among five new Trustees elected to join the Foundation’s Board this year.
“It’s a tremendous honor to be able to support the U.S. Army War College in its vital mission by serving with the Army War College Foundation,” said Beaty.
The Army War College Foundation is a non-profit organization that provides the “margin of excellence” to the academic experience of resident and distance students at the U.S. Army War College. The Foundation enhances the educational experience of these students through stewardship of many key programs.
The purpose of the U.S. Army War College is to produce graduates who are skilled critical thinkers and complex problem solvers in the global application of strategic land power. Concurrently, it also acts as a “Think Factory” for commanders and civilian leaders at the strategic level worldwide and engages in discourse and debate on the role of military forces in achieving our national security objectives. Top performing officers, typically Colonels, from all branches of the U.S. military plus Allies participate in a 10-month educational experience earning a Master’s degree in Strategic Studies. In 2017, Tom Beaty participated in the National Security Seminar which takes place during the final week of the program. Beaty and other civilians engaged in discussions with the next generation of senior leaders of the U.S. Armed Forces, providing these leaders with a deeper understanding of perspectives across the American society they serve.
Beaty founded Insight Sourcing Group in 2002 and has grown it into the premiere boutique consulting firm focused exclusively on strategic sourcing and procurement-related cost optimization. Around the same time, he founded the Witness to War Foundation, a 501(c)(3) oral history preservation non-profit dedicated to capturing and preserving the first-hand accounts of our nation’s combat veterans. Witness to War has interviewed veterans of nearly every war and conflict dating back to World War II, and houses an impressive collection of nearly 6,000 clips from 2,500 interviews. Tom has personally conducted hundreds of these interviews himself on digital video and both he and Witness to War have been featured on C-SPAN, CNN, Fox News, the Boston Globe, and other major media outlets.
Beaty is a graduate of the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill with a Bachelor’s degree in Military History and an MBA from the Goizueta Business School at Emory University.
