Steven Collins

President and Founder

Welcome to Black Ice Consulting. We aim to provide an informative and user-friendly experience on our website. Our expertise has been refined over the years to deliver exceptional service to our high net-worth clients, each with unique and evolving requirements, and in supporting government clients with their specific needs in acquisition, risk management and cybersecurity.

With over 25 years at the helm of Black Ice Security Services, Inc., and 22 years in Naval Service, reaching the pinnacle as a Navy SEAL Master Chief, I’ve encountered and overcome a multitude of challenges in leadership and problem-solving across a variety of high-pressure environments. My comprehensive background, spanning both military and corporate sectors, enriched by global travel, and executive and board-level engagements, has equipped me with a deep understanding of complex scenarios and diverse individuals. This unique blend of experiences enables me to provide customized support, precisely tailored to meet the specific needs of each client.

Although some may perceive this background as extraordinary, the essence of our work (just as in special operations) often involves routine tasks that demand meticulous patience and management, adaptability to dynamic events, and a capacity to make decisions and execute on strategic and tactical goals. My primary approach is to thoroughly understand my client’s needs, intent and vision, then together, devise a roadmap and path forward and as needed, highly skilled, meticulously selected personnel to address those needs effectively.
