Supporting South Carolina Defense and Health IT Community, TIAG® Appoints Local Lowcountry Fed Health Tech Leader as New General Manager for Charleston Strategic Business Unit
RESTON, Va., April 12, 2019 — TIAG® — an innovative technology company providing transformational solutions to private industry and across the Department of Defense — recently expanded into Charleston, South Carolina, appointing Charleston local Erick M. Iverson as new general manager for this region.
Executing TIAG leadership’s vision and strategy for the company’s new Charleston Strategic Business Unit, Iverson brings more than two decades of experience supporting diverse federal initiatives, intelligence communities and commercial endeavors. Esteemed by industry peers as a tenacious federal health technology leader, Iverson was a winner in the 2019 FedHealthIT100, a peer-nominated award that honors those who drive change, innovation and advancement in federal health information technology and consulting markets.
“Well known and well respected, Erick will focus on TIAG’s growth within Charleston’s thriving technology community, delivering TIAG’s innovative service offerings that benefit existing and new customers across federal health agencies, along with the Navy and Marine Corps,” says TIAG Chief Strategy Officer and Managing Principal Umang Modi.
Among other contracts and initiatives, Iverson will oversee TIAG’s clinical enterprise health information technology (health IT) support for Defense Health Agency (DHA) and Charleston-based Naval Information Warfare Center (NIWC) Atlantic (previously known as Space and Naval Warfare Systems Command / SPAWAR).
“I believe that success in this business comes from delivering exceptional results for clients, and my service-oriented approach to building motivated, empowered, customer-focused teams fits well with TIAG’s corporate culture,” says Iverson, a Charleston Lowcountry local for the past decade. “Agile as we are, we can achieve successful outcomes that truly make a difference for customers within Charleston’s ‘Silicon Harbor’ — and as we keep our customers happy, we get to continue growing our company and our people.”
When Iverson is not helping customers or participating in Charleston-area IT industry organizations — among them, Charleston Defense Contractors Association — he actively supports Charleston’s local music scene, savors Lowcountry’s culinary offerings, and embraces South Carolina’s great outdoors with family and friends.
TIAG’s Charleston expansion marks the company’s third strategic expansion within the past three years, following its 2017 Pacific Northwest expansion into Seattle’s tech community, and the addition of its Huntsville location in 2018. Demonstrating TIAG’s ongoing commitment to Charleston by providing a centralized office for its fast-growing staff in this region, the company’s new Charleston Strategic Business Unit is located at 1671 Belle Isle Avenue, Suite 110 in the Belle Hall community of Mount Pleasant — just over the bridge from Charleston, where the Mark Clark Expressway (I-526) ends at U.S. Route 17.
“Building on TIAG’s successful model of proactive community involvement in D.C., Seattle and Huntsville, Erick and TIAG are eager to work with government, academia and private industry partners to make positive contributions within Charleston’s collaborative technology cluster,” says Modi.
