Scott Brown, R-Mass., waves to supporters from his bus after a campaign rally at Faneuil Hall in Boston. Three years ago, Brown was a little-known Republican state senator from Massachusetts who shocked Democrats by winning a U.S. Senate seat. Now, having compiled a voting record more moderate than his tea party allies would have liked and losing his bid for a full term, Brown is considering whether to seize a second chance to return to the Senate in another special election.

Former Sen. Scott Brown has joined a foreign intelligence and gun manufacturing company as an adviser. 

Brown, the former Republican senator from Massachusetts, will serve as an adviser to Global Digital Solutions, Inc. (GSDI), the company announced Tuesday. 

“We’re thrilled to have someone with Scott Brown’s national stature and extensive government experience on our Advisory Board,” GSDI President and CEO Richard J. Sullivan said in a statement. 

GSDI bills itself as a company that does “small arms manufacturing” as well as “complementary security and technology solutions and knowledge-based, cyber-related, culturally attuned social consulting in unsettled areas.”

Sullivan also mentioned Scott’s service in the National Guard. In August 2012 Brown was promoted to colonel in the National Guard. 

“Scott’s leadership roles at both the state and federal levels – with a consistent focus on security-related issues – and his longtime service in the Army National Guard give him great perspective, experience and relationships that will be very helpful to GDSI going forward,” Sullivan continued. 

Since leaving office Brown has suggested interest in either running for governor of Massachusetts or even president of the United States. More recently though Brown said he would focus on work in the private sector. 

“I’m very excited about joining GDSI’s growing team of expert advisors,” Brown said.
