Captain John Banigan, USN (Ret)
Plus Veterans, L.L.C.
Captain Banigan maintains 27 years of business management experience in leading some of our country's most visible and complex programs. His innovative approaches are now directed at the transportation industry.
Proven in combat. Captain Banigan had the distinct privilege of commanding 2 capital warships (USS JOHN S. McCAIN (DDG 56); USS LAKE ERIE (CG 70)), leading thousands of Sailors, and managing some of our nation's most advanced programs. He matured a White House concept into an operational ballistic missile defense system, tested to certification and operated next generation combat systems, and authored key business agreements to develop modern deterrent capabilities in the defense of our nation.
Our President transitioned from the steel decks of his warship with a new purpose... to make a difference in the commercial industry. His approach proved revolutionary and positively disruptive. He resolved industry shortfalls and enabled use of government shipping discounts as the U.S. government intended.
Captain Banigan earned the prestigious Legion of Merit and Meritorious Service Medals, as well as Missile Defense Agency's highest award for "significant contributions to our nation's Ballistic Missile Defenses."
