Stanley E. Kopman
Chief Executive Officer & Founder
Stan is the Chief Executive Officer and Founder of Asset Defense Consulting, L.L.C. (“ADC”) and the head of a diverse Leadership Team responsible for policy development and management related to the day-to-day activities of the company. He brings more than 39 years of experience in the electric utility business, including over 20 years in the area of monitoring, enforcing and mitigating compliance to U.S. and Canadian regulatory-approved reliability standards including those related to physical and cyber security. As Founder of ADC he was driven by his exposure to the military through his son’s enlistment in the United States Navy.
It was through this exposure that he became familiar with the personnel that were responsible for physical security and anti-terrorism. He witnessed a deep commitment to country and service and the impressive credentials that these men and women acquired as they were trained during their military service. He was also exposed to the difficulties veterans have transitioning from active military service to civilian life after they are separated from service. These factors combined with the current state of the world we live in prompted him to create ADC.
Working initially with his son and senior military personnel the mission and vision of ADC were developed. From those statements an organization that would allow U.S. veterans to utilize their highly qualified skills while safely, effectively and proudly transitioning to civilian life was envisioned. This organization would allow them to continue to serve the country that they love unconditionally and with the same degree of pride and honor they displayed while in the service.
