Dear Friend:

We are pleased to share with you that Jonathan Greenert will address the virtual ICAS Fall Symposium Poseidon with a particular emphasis on "Challenges and Threats to Regional Security: China's Gray Zone operations in the East and South China Sea" on October 19, 2021, Washington DC.

Admiral Jonathan Greenert currently holds the Shalikashvili (“Shali”) Chair in Security Studies at NBR (National Bureau of Asian Research). The Shali Chair’s charter is to: (1) inform the public, and USG policy makers, regarding global security (with an INDOPACIFIC focus); (2) help shape their perspective through objective studies, presentations and interface; and 3) influence their decisions by providing timely, objective, non-partisan analysis.

Jon served 40 years in the US Navy. During his career, he spent ~20 years in the Asia-Pacific region in leadership positions, living in Japan (2X) and Guam, from which Jon observed China’s military evolution. He served as Chief of the Navy (CEO) from 2011-2015, and retired from government service in October, 2015. Currently, Jon serves as a director, advisor and consultant for companies and firms.

Admiral Greenert is known as a "terrific leader and a fabulous boss" among his cadre of friends and colleagues.

Thank you.
