The mission of the program is to provide training to promote the development of an Agency culture in all elements of professional, tradecraft and corporate growth that support our national security objectives.

Mr. Stephans began his career with the Defense Mapping Agency in 1982, filling a variety of leadership and technical roles in the Agency’s media production operations, including branch chief responsible for the development of technical provisions of commercial contracts totaling over $37 million. Mr. Stephans deployed to Bosnia/Herzegovina in 1995 and led a 32 member team in support of all Geospatial activities for the region, and was the sole Agency representative to the multi-national NATO force. The team received the NATO Peace Medal and St. Louis Federal Executive Team Award for their efforts.
