Sr. Vice President

United States Marine Corp.
From a very young age, Joshua Skule wanted to serve in the military. The mission and esprit de corps of the Marines drew him to become a Marine. Joshua worked as an Intelligence Officer in the Marines and was stationed at 29 Palms and Camp Pendleton where he served for six years. He was a U.S. Marine Captain and led teams in multiple challenging deployments around the world.
“My citations don’t compare to today’s Marines as we should constantly be grateful for their service,” said Joshua. “The deployment schedule of today’s warriors over the last 20 years, and the incredible heroism they have displayed, is nothing short of remarkable.”
Joshua says that his experience in the military influenced his career and he’s proud of Allied Universal’s continual commitment in employing and honoring military veterans. As Senior Vice President at Allied Universal, Joshua Skule is responsible for enhancing the Risk Advisory and Consulting Services division as a leading national and global provider of differentiating consulting, investigations and protective services.
“After serving in the military, working in the security industry can become a rewarding second career for military veterans,” said Joshua. "I am honored to be able to offer my skills I learned in the military in order to enhance the company’s risk advisory programs and initiatives.”
An employee for Allied Universal since 2019, Joshua joined Allied Universal after a distinguished 21-career in the FBI, where he was the Executive Assistant Director for Intelligence leading the organization’s Intelligence Branch. In this role, he served as the strategic leader of the FBI’s intelligence program with centralized authority, responsibility and oversight for all the bureau’s intelligence work. In addition, he managed a global workforce of 5,000 personnel and a National Intelligence Program budget of over $3 billion. In 2017, he was the recipient of the Presidential Rank Award for Meritorious Service.
During his career, Skule was co-chair of the Domestic Security Alliance Council (DSAC), which is a strategic partnership between the US federal law enforcement and over 500 CSO’s from private industry companies that enhances communication and promotes the timely and effective exchange of security and intelligence information. As the Deputy Assistant Director within the FBI’s Counterterrorism Division, he developed a long-term strategic roadmap for technology investment in the bureau’s highest priority program.
