Mike Moran was a great addition to the team at Rencap, bringing in new product, a flair for writing, and personal charm. He has broad contacts, a can-do approach, fresh ideas and drive. A pleasure to have worked with.
Moran is a sharp thinker and fine storyteller, and his book, The Reckoning, is a terrifically engaging read. America’s role in the world is a subject that demands clarity and nuance, and this book delivers both.
Michael’s talent as a journalist and writer is extraordinary, but more remarkable considering his ability to also just make things HAPPEN. Michael has repeatedly taken a fresh vision for a new type of content and turned it into a reality. He can run a complex project with multiple stakeholders, multiple contractors, and often conflicting constituents — and is able to bring the pieces together as master producer.
Not only Mike was instrumental for the successful redesign of our website, given his extensive media experience, but, in the role of executive editor, he built and led a terrific editorial team that greatly increased the editorial quality of RGE’s offering. Mike is also a top notch geopolitical expert and author, and great colleague to work with.
Mike is the type of leader any skilled professional dreams of having. He inspires you, he gives you freedom, and he pushes you to do the best work of your life. The impact he has on all those he manages and mentors is profound – one that is not easily found again.
“Scott Malcomson has brilliantly extended the connections between Silicon Valley and the military back far beyond DARPA—back, in fact, to World War I.”
