Senior Director & Intelligence Practice Lead
Based out of Prague, Michael has been critical to growing Prescient’s presence in the EU and will now lead our Intelligence Practice going forward.

He will leverage his extensive public policy and international affairs experience to assist clients with competitive intelligence, market entry, travel intelligence, and sensitive business intelligence matters as our Intelligence Practice Leader.
Having joined the company in 2014, Meg has been with Prescient during every stage of our growth and is a critical part of our current and future success. From helping build our Prescient Traveler platform that was successfully sold in 2017, to revamping our company branding, to helping launch our Executive Digital Protection (EDP) program, Meg has done it all. She now steps into a leadership role in our rapidly growing cyber practice and will lead all Threat Monitoring projects, in addition to helping grow EDP, Threat Attribution, and OSINT data solutions.
