Will Donaldson, President and CEO
Will Donaldson joined the United States Marine Corps in 1992 as a combat correspondent and subsequently was promoted to the top webmaster position in 1995. He served his first tour at the Marine Barracks, Ground Self Defense Force in Guantanamo Bay, Cuba for a year during the Haitian-Cuban migrant operations. After GTMO he deployed for two consecutive tours as part of 3rd Marine Division in Okinawa, Japan where he traveled to Australia, Korea, Thailand and Phnom Phen, Cambodia with Sen. John McCain. During his final tour at the Pentagon, as part of Headquarters, US Marine Corps, Donaldson established the baseline for all USMC websites and was an integral part of the newly established Department of Defense Internet Working Group.

Donaldson was profiled for his management in the Washington Post and continues to use SMEAC for projects.

Donaldson created the Marine Corps News system, a secure, web-based portal that continued to grow and remained in service for more than a decade with limited technical upgrades.  He has refined and converted this system for use in civilian applications with great success.

As a Marine, Donaldson developed a web-based replacement for  the antiquated "Fleet Hometown News Release" program, which submits more than 1 million press releases annually.  HCI's Media Release Services provide online press release services that are scalable for the largest grassroots campaigns, product and service announcements and lobbying efforts.

Donaldson has taught at the Defense Information School and has provided expert consultation and testimony in computer forensics for the FBI and USMC.
