President & CEO
Greg Louks is a graduate of the West Point Class of 1988 where he was the First Captain, the highest-ranked cadet. Intending to serve a career as an officer, his time in the service was cut short due to an injury which forced his medical separation.
Shortly after leaving the armed services, Greg returned to West Point as a Director in the West Point Association of Graduates where he served 14 years, including his role as Manager of The Bicentennial Campaign, which raised nearly a quarter billion dollars. He created a process, which he later helped the other US service academies adopt, by which private funds could be used to build privately on federal land to control costs on privately-funded facilities. Liberated through innovation, Greg personally oversaw the revolutionarily successful construction of over a dozen projects throughout the West Point campus, valued over $125M, delivered on-time and on-budget in historical proportions.
After leaving the West Point AOG, Greg started IRON SWORD and built it into the first-rate firm that it is today. Due to its collective experience and reputation, federal and private entities, including the US Merchant Marine Academy, Regeneron Pharmaceuticals and The Salvation Army, have sought IRON SWORD for consulting and construction/development management services.
