About Paul Brinkley


Paul Brinkley - Professional Summary:    Paul Brinkley was named Deputy Under Secretary of Defense for Business Transformation in March 2005. In this position, Paul Brinkley led the business modernization initiatives for the Department of Defense (DoD), working with defense and military agencies to transform business processes and systems in order to provide additional support for the war and ensure financial accountability. Mr. Brinkley also established and oversaw the Business Transformation Agency, which delivered common systems and processes in support of acquisition, finance, logistics, and personnel activity for the DoD.

During his tenure with the DoD, Paul Brinkley led the Task Force for Business and Stability Operations (TFBSO), which he established in 2006 and whose mission was to stabilize the Iraqi economy and provide jobs for its citizens. Under Paul Brinkley’s leadership, the TFBSO encouraged leaders from the United States and other countries to support Iraq’s industries, with more than 400 business executives, engineers, accountants, and scholars deployed across the country’s provinces. To date, the TFBSO has helped to employ more than 250,000 Iraqis, negotiated contracts in excess of $1 billion between state-owned enterprises and foreign investors, and restarted operations at more than 60 Iraqi factories. While working with the TFBSO, Mr. Brinkley commuted between his home in Washington, D.C., and the Middle East two weeks out of every month. At the request of military commanders and Defense Secretary Robert Gates, Brinkley later expanded TFBSO operations to Afghanistan, Pakistan, as well as Rwanda and Sudan.

Brinkley departed government service in June 2011. He now serves as President and Chief Executive of North America Western Asia Holdings, an investment and business development firm focused on establishing industrial operations in the Middle East.

Prior to joining the DoD, Paul Brinkley served in several capacities for JDS Uniphase Corporation: as Senior Vice President of Customer Advocacy and Chief Information Officer, as Senior Vice President of Supply Chain Management, and as Vice President of Information Technology. He also held senior management and technical positions with Nortel Networks.

Paul Brinkley earned both a BS and an MS in Industrial Engineering from Texas A&M University. He has also completed coursework for a PhD in Operations Research from North Carolina State University.
