RESTON, Va., Nov. 30, 2016—Ever-increasing cyber threats, both malicious and accidental, are fiercely rife with potential to devastate computer networks and expose sensitive data in our electronically interconnected world. Advancing the vital work of tiag® in providing innovative solutions for military and government, Dan McCarron will lead as general manager of the company’s new National Security division.
“Leading tiag’s work with U.S. Department of Defense, Homeland Security, Department of Justice, military and intelligence communities, Dan brings an unmatched level of expertise and understanding to client missions,” says Dalita Harmon, tiag president and CEO. “His exceptional background in national security—fused with his comprehensive knowledge of issues germane to cybersecurity and intelligence—will help tiag clients advance critical missions for cybersecurity, advanced analytics, enterprise IT modernization, software development, and other IT initiatives.”
McCarron brings 35 years of successes to this role. Previously, while working with Whitney, Bradley & Brown, McCarron helped establish and lead intelligence operations in Afghanistan and Iraq as chief of staff for DoD’s Counter-IED Operations/ Intelligence Integration Center. During his prior 25-year military career, McCarron held several high-ranking positions as a commanding officer in the United States Marine Corps.
At the Pentagon, McCarron was chief of Central Command in the Joint Operations Division, leading the Joint Staff in campaign planning for all U.S. Central Command operations, and providing strategic advice to the Joint Operations director for decision-making use by the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff and the secretary of defense. At Pentagon’s Marine Corps headquarters, McCarron advised the Marine Corps commandant and assistant commandant on joint matters for strategy.
