Would you like to learn more about us? You're in the right place!
Jadex Strategic Group (JADEX) is a technology business focused on transforming how people work virtually and securely. JADEX is a Hispanic, Veteran-owned, and operated business committed to helping people improve their technology environments and security maturity. We are a collective mix of professionals who have supported much of the critical infrastructure industries. We apply the best practices of the security, military, intelligence, and compliance methodologies to our services.
Jadex Strategic Group is the culmination of over a decade of dedicated effort from JADEX’s CEO Edwin Hill. For the past twelve years, Edwin has raised his three children as a full-time single father with a dream of creating an organization that would enable him to provide for them. This meant working full-time and balancing the demands of raising three children while pursing his dreams. The goal has always been to build an organization that his children would be proud to inherit.
For years, it seemed that JADEX might not ever come to fruition but with the assistance of loved one’s, friends, and serendipitous events we’ve been able build an organization focused on service and protection.
Our CEO began his career as a Cryptologic Technician in U.S. Naval Intelligence community supporting the National Security Agency (NSA).
After a successful tour onboard the USS Chosin (CG-65) as a signals collection analyst and Watch Center Supervisor, he went on to become a Master Training Specialist at the Center for Information Dominance.
After leaving the service, Edwin went on to support various Intelligence agencies, Special Forces, and Department of Defense (DOD) organizations as a defense contractor and a U.S. government employee.
Finally, moving back to Michigan to focus more on family, he started his career over in the Information Technology field. He took entry level roles and gradually advanced to more prominent and technical roles within Fortune 100 companies in US Manufacturing and Financial technology.
These experiences enable JADEX to understand multiple facets of security, compliance, and information technology.
