Hal  Metcalfe


Dr. Hal Metcalfe graduated from the University of Richmond and was commissioned a 2nd Lieutenant in the U.S. Army, subsequently rising to the rank of Captain.  After serving six (6) years, he resigned his commission to accept a Special Agent position with the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), where he served for 25 years.  Some of his FBI experiences included investigating federal criminal violations and complex investigations, some of them ‘world-wide.’  He was selected as one of the original 50 members of the FBI’s elite Hostage Rescue Team.  He served in myriad leadership positions: Richmond Field Office; Hostage Rescue Team, Quantico, VA [Operator and Sniper Team Leader]; FBI Headquarters, Washington, D.C. [Special Operations & Surveillance Program Manager]; Louisville Field Office [Supervisory Special Agent]; and the Operational Technology Division, Quantico, VA [Unit Chief].  After his retirement from the FBI, he supported Counterintelligence and Investigations with the Lockheed Martin Corporation.  He was selected to be a recurring Guest Lecturer at the FBI Academy at Quantico, VA, from 2013-2015.  He earned his Bachelor’s Degree from the University of Richmond; Master’s Degree from Central Michigan University; and his Doctor’s Degree from George Washington University.  Dr. Metcalfe earned his doctoral degree from The George Washington University, Executive Leadership Program (ELP), which is organized around three constructs: organizational development and change; leadership development; and individual, group, and organizational learning. The results of his research are contained in his dissertation: “Ethical Leadership of the Successor Subsequent to the Ethical Failure of the Predecessor: Creating an Organizational Phoenix.”
