LCDR Edgar N. Guerrero (Retired)
Booz Allen Hamilton
When Booz Allen Hamilton began their search for a Program Manager to oversee their work with the Navy Program Executive Office Space Systems, which coordinates all Navy space research, development and acquisition activities, they could barely have imagined finding a candidate as qualified as Edgar Guerrero. In his role overseeing the end-to-end development of the Navy’s Mobile User Objective System, narrow band tactical satellite communications, he is responsible for planning, directing, and coordinating a crucial defense program that enables the communications, reconnaissance, and intelligence systems that serve to maintain America’s security on a daily basis.
With 22 years of experience in the Navy as an Instructor Pilot and Tactics Officer, Maintenance and Operations Officer, and Safety Department Head, Mr. Guerrero was deployed to Iraq three times before ending his Navy career as Ship Installation Execution Manager at Naval Space and Electronic Warfare System Command (SPAWAR) in San Diego. The transition from the military to the private sector was seamless given his detailed familiarity with the division he would continue to work with as an outside contractor.
While still in the service, Mr. Guerrero was a member of the Association of Naval Services Officers (ANSO), the Navy’s Hispanic officers’ association, whose goal it is to raise STEM scholarships for Hispanic students, but his life of service did not end once he took off his uniform. He has taken leadership positions as President of the San Diego Chapter of Naval Services Officers, PTA President of Eastlake High School, and President of the San Miguel Ranch HOA. He is also an active mentor at a predominantly Hispanic middle school in the San Diego South Bay Area, working with school children to focus them on pursuing a path to college and a STEM career.
Born in El Paso, Texas, Mr. Guerrero received his bachelor’s degree from The University of New Mexico. He is a hand-selected member of the Chula Vista City Ethics Commission and is currently pursuing a candidacy for a Chula Vista City Council District One Seat.
