Protiviti, a global consulting firm, has appointed Danelle Barrett, a retired US Navy rear admiral, to its advisory board.

Barrett joins a diverse group of subject matter experts who support Protiviti with market and business insights. The firm in 2021 welcomed Dame Inga Beale, former CEO of Lloyd’s of London, to its advisory board.

Barrett retired from the US Navy in 2019 after a distinguished 30-year military career. In her final role as director of the US Navy Cybersecurity Division, Barrett led the Navy’s strategic development and execution of digital and cyber security efforts, enterprise IT improvements, and cloud policy and governance for 700,000 personnel.

She was also previously director of current operations at US Cyber Command and chief of staff of the Navy Information Forces Command.

Barrett’s operational assignments included deployments in support of operations in Iraq, Afghanistan, and Haiti.

She is an independent director on the boards of Progressive Insurance, ShoulderUp, Protego Trust Bank, and Federal Home Loan Bank of New York.

Barrett holds master’s degrees in management and HR development from Webster University, a master’s degree in national strategic studies from the US Naval War College, a master’s degree in management information systems from Syracuse University, and a bachelor’s degree in history from Boston College.

“I am delighted to be joining the Protiviti Advisory Board and am looking forward to collaborating with the firm’s management, its clients and other members of the Advisory Board to share my experiences and perspectives,” said Barrett.
