This article reports on the establishment by Los Angeles, California-based boutique advisory service Salem Partners of its aerospace and defense (A&D) services platform. Industry pros Trevor Bohn and Sean Walker have been hired by Salem Partners for its new A&D practice. The private sector has been turning to defense veterans from the military side to assist companies, private equity firms or advisors working for entities dependent on government contracts. For instance, Advanced Ceramics Research was acquired by BAE Systems in March 2009.
