Board of Advisors

Home

 

Defender Capital is guided by a Board of Advisors that we like to refer to as the “Board of Wisdom.”

The Board consists of experts in their fields who graciously contribute their time, energy, knowledge and experience to moving Defender forward. Like the acronym BOW implies, Defender is directed to navigate the waters of continual improvement.
