Dr. Joseph Catalino joined DarkPulse in 2021 as the Chief Operating Officer where he is responsible for corporate strategy, development, and long-term planning. He is a business operations and management expert who relishes in challenging, high-impact projects. Catalino brings executive experience from both the public and private sectors. Most recently, he separated from the U.S. Department of Defence after nearly eight years as a government executive where he led a number of big initiatives resulting in impressive results.
His last position at the Pentagon was as the U.S. Defence Department Representative on the White House COVID-19 Task Force in 2020. Here, he interfaced with multiple Senior Directors on the National Security Council and interagency leadership, and provided counsel on Defence Department capacity, impact, and strategic planning related to the Pandemic. He represented the U.S Defence Department at the 6th Abu Dhabi Strategic Debate on regional stability in the Middle East in 2019. In addition to his government achievements, he has led private sector firms with extensive experience in business development—with capture results and significant capital generation—and public/private health services delivery/administration. Catalino is an advisory board member of DarkPulse Inc., and KIRSH Helmets and is a Senior Fellow at the University of South Florida.
Catalino holds a PhD in Public Policy and Administration and an MPA from Walden University; an MSA in Health Services Administration from Central Michigan University; a BS in Workforce Education from Southern Illinois University at Carbondale; and is a graduate of the U.S. Air Force War College. He attributes his successes to mentors who gave him opportunities and counselled him through many failures. As a result, he is a passionate mentor, and has guided many professionals through different phases of their careers. In his spare time you will find him in Colorado with his wife and daughter – or on a motorcycle either in the hills or on a racetrack dragging his knee.
