Mr. Schmidt’s Unique Perspective on the Government Contracting Market (video)


In the first of a new series, here’s an interview with Karl Schmidt for our Market Pulse blog. Karl is our newest director here at KippsDeSanto & Co., and talks about how his military experience gives him a unique perspective on the government contracting market.

Karl joined KippsDeSanto & Co. from Houlihan Lokey’s Aerospace/Defense/Government industry investment banking group, where he was a senior vice president. Schmidt served as an officer in the U.S. Army, having combat arms assignments in Europe and the Middle East. He also worked on the staff of the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, focusing on intelligence assessments, transformation efforts and weapons testing.
