Before joining the private sector, Buckley served as a surface warfare officer in the U.S. Navy, as both an engineering officer and a combat systems officer. The vessels on which he served were involved in the Gulf War, Panama and counter-narcotics operations in the Caribbean.

Buckley has a bachelor’s degree from the United States Naval Academy, where he focused on optical physics, and an MBA from the Wharton School of Business, where he studied operational management. Active in his local community, Buckley is a familiar speaker at various professional events throughout the country and also coaches youth football and lacrosse.
