Naval Inspector General (or what we would call the Chief Compliance and Ethics Officer in the Investment Industry). Other notable assignments include: the Director, White House Situation Room; Commander, US Naval Forces Korea; Commander, Carrier Strike Group Seven (the USS Ronald Reagan (CVN-76)), and the 52nd president of the U.S. Naval War College in Newport, RI.
At sea, Wisecup served as executive officer of the guided-missile cruiser USS Valley Forge (CG-50) during Operation Desert Storm. As commanding officer of the guided-missile destroyer USS Callaghan (DDG-994 and the inspiration for our firm’s name 994 Group!), he was awarded the Vice Admiral James Bond Stockdale Award for Inspirational Leadership in 1996. He served as Commander, Destroyer Squadron 21 during Operation Enduring Freedom after the terrorist attacks of 11 September 2001.

He also earned a degree from the University of Strasbourg, France, as an Olmsted Scholar, after graduating from the U.S. Naval Academy in 1977.
Admiral Wisecup is a dedicated husband, father, grandfather, and friend. So far, his most sage advice has covered the topic of children in the bathtub—can’t get ‘em in, can’t get ‘em out!
