Exovera, a developer of A.I. driven decision-making software for the U.S. government, has announced that Nicolas Chaillan has joined the company’s advisory board.
Chaillan served as the first Chief Software Officer of the U.S. Air Force and Space Force. In that role, he helped the Department of Defense (DoD) Chief Information Officer (CIO) expand DevSecOps across the Department. Prior to that, he served as a Special Advisor to the DoD’s CIO for Cloud Security, and Chief Architect and Special Advisor for Cybersecurity to the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Science and Technology (S&T) Directorate, where he designed among the largest and most comprehensive “Zero Trust” systems in the U.S. Government.
Since entering the private sector, Chaillan has become a highly successful entrepreneur and innovator advising technology-focused companies on their growth strategies.
“Exovera brings together deep subject matter knowledge with powerful AI-enabled technical capabilities to deliver a unique set of leading-edge solutions to its customers,” said Nicolas Chaillan. “I’m excited to be working with the Exovera team as they continue to innovate and bring new products to market, leveraging my experience as an entrepreneur and proven track record taking 12 startups to the next level.”
The addition of Chaillan to the advisory board follows the hiring of Frank Miller as Exovera’s Vice President for Intelligence Integration. Miller is an expert on China and strategic security cooperation in the Pacific. He retired from the Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA) in early 2022 as the director of partner engagements after a 30-year career in intelligence.
“Nic is a national asset. His technical expertise and demonstrated success in the commercial software market will help prepare Exovera for its next phase of growth,” said Bob Sogegian, CEO of Exovera. “Coupled with the recent addition of Frank Miller, we are excited to unlock greater innovation as we build partnerships and support new clients.”
