Transition Story: starting with a blank piece of paper

Ade Clewlow is an ‘internationalist at heart’ and it shows from his varied experiences across the globe – from a Jane’s Defence Weekly correspondent and freelance journalist with the BBC in Portugal, to an education professional at the Qatari Staff College, and strategic communications expert in Somalia. During his career as a Royal Signals Officer, he also led Gurkha soldiers on operations in Baghdad and conducted stakeholder engagement during a major defence transformation in Kosovo.

In 2012 he left the Army, set up his own consultancy, and became drawn into a number of different UK and international roles. Having tasted various short term positions and experienced a great deal along the way, both positive and negative, Ade knew he needed to focus on a longer term role.
He always wanted to work with a global brand that had many opportunities for working overseas. No doubt it was his understanding of different cultures, coupled with his extensive experience from within the UK Government and Defence, underpinned by a technical career that ensured he was an attractive prospect to Thales Cyber and Consulting. The business offers customers innovative consulting and advisory solutions wherever safety and security are critical across Government & Defence, Aerospace, Ground Transportation and Security.
