Mack Bradley is the creative force behind StandPoint’s partnership. He’s built a reputation as a thoughtful strategic partner who can help envision and defend one’s StandPoint. Mack focuses on strategic communications, crisis management, public affairs and media relations, and he’s a broadly trusted ally and sounding board to clients and colleagues alike. He’s worked for corporate clients large and small, local and regional government agencies, charitable foundations, not-for-profits and religious institutions. His expertise ranges from billion-dollar real estate development projects to large festivals (keep an eye out for him at Mardi Gras!), to complex public policy issues.
A frequent trainer and speaker, Mack has conducted media and/or crisis training for hundreds of participants in North America and Europe in various industries, including emergency risk communications training related to chemical, biological, radiological or nuclear threats. Part of this curriculum, sponsored by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, focuses on the psychology of risk communications in a public crisis.
Mack is an active member of the community. He currently serves on the St. Patrick Center Board of Trustees and is president of the Mardi Gras Foundation. He is past president of AmeriCorps St. Louis, and a past member of Mid-America Transplant Services Board, the Cardinal Glennon Foundation Development Board and the Mayor’s Commission on Violent Crime.

Susan is StandPoint’s resident devil’s advocate – a title she once held (for real!) in the U.S. Intelligence Community. Her experience challenging military and civilian leadership to re-think assumptions, consider alternative StandPoints, and think more critically and creatively about our nation’s most challenging security threats provides the team with an analytic toolkit that helps clients improve decision-making through a better understanding of complex and dynamic environments.
During her time in government, Susan was at the forefront of Red Teaming in the military and intelligence communities. She was the lone female civilian in the first class of graduates from the Army’s Red Team University. After graduation, she headed to Hawaii where she built U.S. Indo-Pacific Command’s first Red Team. The concept was judged a “best practice” by Joint Forces Command and became the model for Red Teams across the combatant commands. In 2009, Susan testified before the Congressional US-China Economic and Security Review Commission about her publication, Chinese Perceptions of Traditional and Nontraditional Security Threats.
Upon returning to Washington, D.C., Susan became the devil’s advocate for the Defense Intelligence Agency. As the senior methodological expert on alternative analysis, Susan wrote the tradecraft manual on alternative analysis and led analysts across the agency in instilling creativity and rigor into their analysis. She received the National Intelligence Meritorious Unit Citation and Joint Civilian Service Achievement Award during her time in government.
Susan is also a professor of international affairs at Washington University in St. Louis, teaching graduate-level courses on the intelligence community, national security decision-making and alternative analysis. She serves as President of the Board for Samuel Preschool and as a night site coordinator for the Room at the Inn, an emergency shelter program for women and families.
She has an MPA in International Security Policy from Harvard’s Kennedy School of Government and an MA in Political Management from George Washington University. As a military spouse who moved five times in seven years, Susan is happily settled in St. Louis with her husband Jim and their two growing boys.
