Dr. Catalino is a business operations and management expert who relishes in challenging, often neglected and avoided projects. From economic development in a conflict zone, to cost-modeling of a government bureaucracy, Joe has led a number of high-levelinitiatives resulting in impressive results as one of the Pentagon’s top free-lanceexecutives, cementing his reputation as a fixer, builder, closer, and change- agent. For the last 6 years, he has led multiple organizations and teams within the U.S. Defense Department (DoD).
Joe was the last head of the Pentagon’s Task Force for Business and StabilityOperations. This controversial program focused on direct foreign investmentand industrial revitalization in Afghanistan. Congressional and inter-governmental criticisms placed the organization on the chopping block and Joe was appointed to close the agency. He worked tirelessly to appease Congress, multiple federal agencies, and international partners while closing out the$800M program. Joe wrapped up remaining infrastructure projects ahead ofschedule and under budget, returning $11M back to the Treasury; delivered a complete property book and digital archive, and transitioned all employees (2013-2015).
He developed the Pentagon’s first-ever Counterterrorism Partnership Program Office. This $1.3 billion initiative provided a sustainable, nation-building focus allowing the U.S. government to respond more nimbly to evolving terror threats.

Joe was also tasked with the development and deployment of a globally deployed, enterprise-wide, IT system for the Defense Security Cooperation Agency. This failing, $50 million Program of Record was near abandonment.
