LTC Randell Torno

LTC Torno has extensive experience in East Africa having recently completed a recall to Active Service from 2007 to 2010, where he last served as the Chief of the United States Africa Command's Assistance Mission to the Ethiopian Defense Command and Staff College in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia from late 2008 to September 2010. Over the past half year, LTC Torno has also traveled with Savanna East Africa to lead meetings during the Company's Trade Mission to Kenya last October and most recently with the Kenyan Ministry of Housing in New York City.

LTC Torno also served one combat tour in Iraq from 2007 to 2008, where he was responsible for oversight of more than $10 billion of the US Government's Logistics Civil Augmentation Program (LOGCAP), the major supply and services provisioning program for the logistics needs of the 180,000 plus soldiers, sailors, airmen and marines deployed to combat. In his capacity as the LOGCAP Program Officer, he directed the employment and staffing levels for the LOGCAP contractor for ground transportation systems, airfield operations, military maintenance requirements and forward resupply services. LTC Torno initiated systems reviews that resulted in over $25 million in savings to the government over the course of his deployment.

Prior to his recall to duty, he served as the Creative Director and Principal Officer of The Light Brigade, a Dallas-based film production and media services company which he founded in 1991. LTC Torno's clients included numerous regional, national and international companies ranging from Lennox Heating and Air Conditioning to Yum Brands (Pizza Hut), Cadbury Schweppes and Southwest Airlines.
