Governor-elect Lincoln Chafee announced today that Paul McGreevy, a former Lieutenant Commander in the U.S. Navy and business consultant, most recently with Deloitte Consulting, is his choice to be the next Director of the Department of Business Regulation.

“Paul McGreevy has decades of experience in strategic planning,” Chafee said. “He has proven in a variety of environments that he has the ability to approach problem-solving, organization, and planning in a way that produces positive, lasting results. From his military service to his years in the business world, Paul has the experience to perform effectively as the Director of the Department of Business Regulation.”

McGreevy served in the U.S. Navy from 1982-1995, reaching the rank of Lieutenant Commander. During his time in the Navy, he served as a Surface Warfare Officer; worked on a NATO staff coordinating logistics planning for peacekeeping operations in the former Yugoslavia; was the Material and Logistics Officer on a destroyer squadron staff; and served as Chief Engineer on a Navy frigate. After the Navy, McGreevy spent over fourteen years as a senior management and IT consultant with KPMG LLP, BearingPoint Inc., and Deloitte Consulting LLP, where he specialized in business strategic planning, organizational development, and technology architecture for federal agencies. More recently, McGreevy served as Project Manager for Governor-elect Chafee’s winning gubernatorial campaign, and is currently Chafee’s Transition Manager. McGreevy earned a BA in Foreign Affairs and Economics from the University of Virginia, an MA in International Relations from Boston University, and an MA in National Security Affairs from the Naval War College. He is a resident of Newport.
