Dr. David Mahalak, CEO of ALI Consulting
David started his career as a logistics analyst for the Department of Defense. While working as a government contractor he had the opportunity to work on high profile projects such as the Joint Light Tactical Vehicle (JLTV) and Automated Convoy Operations (ACO). Acting as the lead analyst for ACO, Dr. Mahalak was primarily responsible for the Analysis of Alternatives (AoA) and Cost-Benefit Analysis (C-BA). Over the course of his tenure, he had the opportunity to work alongside many active and non-active military personnel. Dr. Mahalak became very passionate about his futuristic, battle-changing work, as well as helping/mentoring military veterans.
In 2014, Dr. Mahalak moved back to Pennsylvania, pursued a Doctorate of Engineering in Engineering Management from George Washington University, and started ALI Consulting. Dr. Mahalak often thinks back to the people he met during his tenure in Ft. Lee, VA. Thus, he has made it his mission with this initiative to provide expertise to veteran-owned small businesses throughout Northeastern Pennsylvania (NEPA).
