ASP would like to welcome Tom Lawson to the ASP Family. Tom will be joining ASP as our Strategic Advisor.
General Thomas James Lawson CD2, CMM, MEng, MPA, ICD is a retired Royal Canadian Air Force general. Lawson was Chief of the Defence Staff (CDS) of the Canadian Armed Forces from October 2012 to July 2015. He previously served as Deputy Commander of the North American Aerospace Defence Command.
As a member of perhaps our nation’s only four- generation Royal Canadian Air Force family, General Lawson looks back on his 40-year military career with deep appreciation. It allowed him to recognize the critical importance of developing leadership qualities within organizations. He especially credits his time as CDS in command of the Canadian Armed Forces as a key opportunity to broaden and hone his strategic visioning skills.
