1| Green Beret Lt. Col. (Ret.) Chris Schmitt
Chris Schmitt is essentially the real-life Col. Hannibal Smith from the A-team.
A recently retired Lt. Col., he logged over 30 years of service in the Green Berets including commanding, planning, and executing special operations all over Europe, Asia, and North Africa. He hung his beret on getting ahead of Al-Qaeda and preventing the network from spreading. His weapon of choice? Kindness. Since retirement, he has shifted his focus toward leadership consulting with Fortune 100 companies through Azimuth Consulting Group and his extreme outdoor development trek, The Traverse.
