Jen Hoar

Jen Hoar leads human source intelligence work at Forward Risk.

She specializes in — and loves — finding and interviewing smart people about any subject. A former journalist, Jen first honed investigative prowess at ABC News, National Journal, and CBS News, and later by working with former CIA operations officials and prosecutors, among others, in boutique corporate intelligence firms in the Washington, DC, area.

Jen was also a founding member of a Facebook investigative team, where she worked on election integrity and information warfare issues. A proud double Hoya, Jen is nonetheless endeared to Fordham, where her parents were longtime professors.

A fitness and travel fanatic, when Jen’s not strategizing her next trip to Tokyo, she’s teaching Pilates, which she injects with pop culture commentary.
