Responding to unique customer challenges and rapid changes in the IT industry and government marketplace, tiag’s new Technology and Innovations Strike Team comprises a core group of visionaries who develop and implement ultimate-solution initiatives. Possessing broad expertise in leading-edge technologies and keen awareness of best practices, these quintessential disruptors are always on the lookout for ways to collaborate and co-create with customers — and each other — to transform technological innovations into ways that solve real business challenges. Drilling deep into the collective psyche of customers and remaining ever vigilant to client missions and needs, they generate brilliant ideas and bring fresh approaches to the customer.

“Customers face intense challenges today that require outside-the-box thinking and solutions to meet these demands,” says Umang Modi, tiag’s managing principal and chief strategy officer. “To provide greater value for our clients, it’s exciting to bring together a diverse, insightful, multi-disciplinary team that works together to identify unique ways to solve customer problems, and then develops game-changing innovations that accelerate client missions.”

Cross collaborating with team members and tiag representatives on the front lines with customers, tiag Executive Director Kate Beltran and tiag director Jake Repanshek co-facilitate cohesion and collaboration — organizing, directing and managing operations, capabilities, activities and deliverables.

“Typically, creating a culture of innovation is an elusive goal for government contractors, but tiag previously established this collaborative ‘innovation law-of-the-land’ for our work on numerous customer projects around the country,” says Beltran. “We are thrilled to make a greater impact for all customers in our company-wide approach to innovation.”

The Technology and Innovations Strike Team leverages the expertise of Repanshek as technical solutions lead; Charles Gross as senior solutions architect; Matthew (Matt) Higgins, mobile project manager; Jenn June, user experience strategist and researcher; Shawn Condra, senior application developer; Dr. Enrique Herrera, data scientist; and Shapna Sultana Pal, cyber expert. tiag director Elizabeth Ahrens serves as program and portfolio management lead.

Moving from concept to conquest while maximizing the ingenuity of scalable opportunities, tiag’s Technology and Innovations Strike Team expands tiag’s growth and position as a sought-after source that helps government and commercial clients forge new pathways and bring disruptive innovations to market.
