SPA is pleased to announce that David Doll, the Analytic Solutions Lead for Veracity Forecasting Group (VFG), has been promoted to VFG Group Leader, effective 1 October. Mike Macedonia, an SPA Vice President and VFG’s original Group Leader, will become VFG’s Technical Director, focusing on business development, product innovation, service delivery, and thought leadership while helping to guide execution of the Group’s project portfolio.
David began assisting Veracity 9 years ago with quantitative analysis of aviation data when he was with the Center for Naval Analyses (CNA). His time at CNA also included serving as a research scientist aboard an aircraft carrier, followed by advanced quantitative analysis work for TOPGUN in Fallon, NV. In April 2019, David left his role as Senior Research Scientist at CNA to take a lead position at Veracity. Since SPA’s acquisition of Veracity in July 2019, he has been a key figure in helping to guide the successful integration. He leads with insight, ability, and team spirit.
In addition to his new responsibilities, David will continue to serve as VFG’s Analytic Solutions Lead. “I look forward to this challenging opportunity, and I’m grateful to Mike Macedonia for his excellent leadership and mentorship over the years I’ve worked with him,” David says. In returning the gratitude, Mike comments that “David will do extremely well in this critical position, knowing how dedicated and professional he is in all his endeavors.”
