President Tocaro Blue

Tocaro Blue’s President knows boats. Tristan has more operational boat experience than just about any other SEAL officer (Ops/XO/CO) at special boat teams. He has commanded them in the continental US and abroad in combat. Because of his experience, he was put in charge of developing the current fleet of unique boats to include their “special” capabilities. He is a US Naval Academy and US Naval War College graduate. He is also Defense Acquisition University certified as a program manager.

Tristan comes to Tocaro Blue from the SyTech Corporation, where he worked as their director of military programs after retiring from the Navy. He managed Department of Defense sales and technological development to support Special Operations communication capabilities. SyTech programs involve the development of high-tech equipment/software to increase operational relevance and effect.

In his career as a SEAL, Tristan served as the Surface Systems Program Manager leading a diverse 53-person team while managing cost, schedule, and performance for nine combatant craft programs totaling over $450M. Tristan was responsible for developing and fielding two new Special Operations Craft Hull forms and Operationalizing a third experimental hull form. Developments included Stealth, Shock Mitigation, Offensive & Defensive weapons systems, Electronics, Propulsion, and hydrodynamic efficiency.

As the Chief Program Analysis & Evaluations Division & Special Programs Assessment Director Special Operations Command, Tristan led a team of five executives and 235 program civilian and military managers in developing the US Special Operations Command’s annual Program Objective Memorandum. That’s a five-year, $67B+ program and resource allocation proposal for the 73,000+ person organization. He concurrently led, managed, and resourced $4.5B+ annually recurring program to support all aspects of sensitive special activities required to organize, train, and equip no-fail forces.

Tristan has not only commanded at every level within the Naval Special Warfare community but also led an international joint combined team of over 350 US/Polish and military, civilian, and Department of State personnel in Afghanistan’s most kinetic and dynamic combat environment where he mentored the Provincial Governor, 19 Sub-Governors, 36 Line Ministers.
