Inspired Innovation
is only 1% of the
Equation

The merits of competing solutions may be debatable,

but winning in the market is not an academic exercise.

Overview

Imaginative Solutions

Successful companies excel at achieving scale. However, sometimes what usually works just…doesn’t. Often, this is because a dynamic challenge is being met with a static solution. We think creatively and expansively to design unique strategies that are proven to succeed against even the slimmest of odds.  Viking offers business advisory services, strategic/crisis communications; public affairs; risk analysis & mitigation planning; management consulting; and stakeholder/third-party engagement. 

Visionary Insights

Leaders need to be able to connect-the-dots and see 'The Big Picture.'  We help you see around corners and gain context by building unique, data-driven insights that leverage an interdisciplinary network of professionals and  experts, including former Administration officials; senior intelligence  and national security officers; accomplished academics, technologists, and researchers; and experienced business leaders.

Decisive Outcomes

Achieving critical business priorities requires successfully navigating competitive environments.  We guide clients seeking competitive advantage amidst the disruptive dynamics of  transformation at the intersection of technology, business and  government. Whether an innovative startup, established market player or a  global industry leader, Viking helps organizations to "punch above  their weight" and achieve high-stakes outcomes.

Leadership

Greg Thomas | Founder & CEO

A skillful navigator of transformation’s collision with public policy,  Greg is an imaginative and visionary strategist helping organizations to  shape favorable operating environments, accelerate growth, and manage  risk.   


Described as "able to convince an iceberg to move  because it is in your way", he is a committed advocate of free  enterprise who helped redefine the public dialogue about Microsoft and  open-source software, improving perception among government elites and  avoiding multi-billion dollar penalties by U.S. and E.U. anti-trust  regulators.  


He began his career in Washington, DC, helping to  develop the post-9/11 Congressional agenda on cybersecurity and privacy.   After public service, he advocated in favor of pragmatic,  innovation-friendly policy solutions for cybersecurity and data privacy,  and against government-mandated “backdoors” and other misguided efforts  to weaken encryption. More recently, he has focused on ensuring that  the Internet remains free from government control and accountable to  its’ global community of stakeholders.  


Greg maintains an  extensive network of relationships with key Congressional offices, think  tanks, the Administration, and, more broadly, with thought leaders,  investors, and technologists around the globe. 


Today, he advises  organizations addressing business priorities in regulated and/or highly  competitive environments - devising game-changing solutions that win.
