The Husick Group, under the leadership of Gail Husick, has been a pioneer in moving a previously military intelligence collection and analysis technique into the civilian sector. As her trainer in the military methodology, I have been honored to assist as she developed and customized it to meet the informational needs of business, police work, and other specialized civilian applications. She has done more with this "spin-off" technology than anyone else in the field of information acquisition. She is presently the leader in this field of technology. I have seen that she is even surpassing the techniques and capabilities that were achieved in the military. She has assembled a team of highly qualified professionals who have also been trained to the military standards and has developed their abilities further to meet civilian needs. Her professionalism and demand for excellence in her team is beyond impressive. I am both impressed and proud to see her amazing accomplishments.
