Peter Jackson

Peter is a Senior Director based in Exiger’s McLean office.


Peter joined Exiger from Systems Planning & Analysis, where he served as a Senior Advisor to the Committee on Foreign Investment in the United States (CFIUS). In this role, he helped implement the recent Foreign Investment Risk Review and Modernization Act of 2018, which was written in part based on his previous work as a senior analyst in the U.S. Department of Defense.


Before this, Peter served as a Senior Analyst at the Defense Counterintelligence and Security Agency. While there, he led a team of analysts reviewing potentially adversarial foreign investments in the U.S. Defense Industrial Base, led a multi-year study of foreign investment practices in sensitive U.S. industries, and advised senior executive personnel in the DOD on counterintelligence and foreign investment risks.


Peter has also worked as an operational manager at the U.S. Census Bureau, and has worked in the financial offices of multiple non-profit organizations, as well as writing & reporting for multiple magazine publications.  He began his career as a financial advisor for the Jewish Community Center of Pittsburgh, PA.
