Greg H. Parlier
United States

Brief Bio

Greg is a retired US Army Colonel. A West Point graduate and Air Defense Artillery officer, he began his 30-year career as a section leader in an airborne infantry battalion and retired as the senior, most experienced operations research analyst in the Army. A combat veteran with multiple tours in the 82nd Airborne Division, he also served as an assistant professor of operations research at West Point. His five OR assignments focused on building, developing, and leading successively larger analytical teams confronting increasingly more demanding transformational c allenges in large, complex commands. The organization he led at US Army Recruiting Command earned distinction as a finalist for the INFORMS Franz Edelman Award. He holds graduate degrees in Operations Research, Systems Engineering, National Security Studies, and was a National Defense Fellow at MIT. Currently, Greg is an independent consultant and serves on the adjunct research staff at the Institute for Defense Analyses (IDA) where he has been an advisor to several foreign governments, and recently served as IDA’s team leader and senior deployed analyst in Iraq.
