Ridge Global, an international provider of strategic consulting services, today announced the expansion of the company’s executive team with the appointments of Duncan Campbell and Chris Furlow, co-founders of The Pennant Group, a strategic advisory firm in the homeland security sector.

“Duncan Campbell and Chris Furlow are both highly regarded for their expertise across a range of security disciplines, including the critical areas of emergency preparedness and response,” said Tom Ridge, president and CEO of Ridge Global. “That expertise, combined with a diverse and respected base of strategic relationships and partners, will further strengthen Ridge Global’s capacity to help our clients stay secure and prosperous in today’s complex operating environment.”

Campbell is a former chief of staff and long-time senior aide to Ridge, the nation’s first secretary of Homeland Security and a two-term governor of Pennsylvania. Campbell brings extensive management experience to Ridge Global and will assume the post of Managing Director of Operations. With more than 15 years of public and private sector experience, including a previous appointment as director of the Homeland Security Advisory Council, Furlow will join the firm as Principal of Ridge Global’s U.S. Public Sector practice.

“It’s an honor to join the founding secretary of Homeland Security and his team,” said Campbell. “We look forward to adding our contributions to a premier group of security, business and former public service professionals.”

“Ridge Global has a reputation for innovative client solutions,” added Furlow. “We believe this opportunity gives us the ability to combine unique skills and relationships to develop a broad suite of dynamic new services.”
