David Reddick serves as Executive Director of the Gateway Higher Education Cybersecurity Consortium, bringing more than two decades of experience in business continuity and cybersecurity to the role.

A former print journalist, he was co-founder in 2000 of Global Velocity, a cybersecurity firm that supported high-speed real time data matching capabilities developed at Washington University in St. Louis.
