John Tieso

Arlington, Virginia, United States


Home page:

John V. Tieso is an internationally recognized author, speaker, and consultant in strategic business management. Born and raised in Boston, Massachusetts, he currently lives and works in Arlington, Virginia.

Mr. Tieso is a product of both the Catholic and public educational community in Boston, graduating in 1968 with a bachelor's degree in History from Boston State College. Entering the Army during the Vietnam-era, Mr. Tieso served honorably in both the Active Military and the Reserve Components, retiring in 1988 as a Sergeant Major, Army Reserve.

Following active duty in 1984, Mr. Tieso was employed by the United States Department of Labor, eventually serving as the Acting Director, Office of Veterans' Reemployment Rights. In 1990, he transferred first to the US Army Corps of Engineers as a senior information planner, and eventually to the Office of the Secretary of Defense where he served as the Deputy Director, Process Improvement. He retired from the Federal Civilian Service in 1997.

Mr. Tieso's expertise lies in the development of data as a resource. He was deeply involved in defining knowledge management in the Federal sector, and has since been involved in the development of standards and technology for enterprise architecture development. His experiences are detailed in "Avoiding False Mirrors" (Create Space,2008).

In all of this, his first love still remains in history and historical eras. He has researched extensively in the era of the American Revolution, and modern business practice; however, he also remains a particular fan of Arab culture and the Arab mind. It is to this area of interest that encouraged him to write "Bernie Minihan's Dilemma", Publish America (2005), Second Edition with CreateSpace Press, 2012). That book enabled him to combine his love for Boston and its communities, with a stark realization that danger is around us at all times, and in every community.

This volume was followed by two additional volumes, "For the Sake of Terror" (Double Edge Press, 2009), "Night Chill" (CreateSpace Press, 2012), and "Twilight at Waterside" (CreateSpace Press, 2013).

Mr. Tieso is also an adjunct Lecturer at the Catholic University of America in Washington, DC, and teaches in the Busch School of Business and Economics and the School of Arts & Sciences in the Library & Information Systems Programs at the graduate level.

Mr. Tieso lives in the Arlington, Virginia community just outside the Nation's Capital with his wife Therese.
