RESTON, Va., February 6, 2018 – tiag® is pleased to announce long-planned changes in leadership for the information technology firm its founders established in 1999 to provide strategic, transformational solutions for private industry and across the Department of Defense.

Co-Founders Dalita Harmon (former president/CEO) and Fred Goeringer (former managing principal) have transitioned from their prior roles and now serve on the company’s board of directors.

Ensuring corporate-wide cohesiveness and consistency in external and internal operations, Lampton will continue to safeguard company stability, innovation, growth and success in tiag’s ongoing works and technology initiatives. Overseeing all levels of internal and external management along with financial responsibility, he is steering numerous objectives, among them, quantitative management activities for the firm’s advanced ISO and CMMI certifications.

Sustaining alignment of tiag’s high standards and objectives at all levels of the organization, Modi will galvanize technology synergies and partnerships by overseeing product development, sales/marketing and enhanced technology capabilities. He will focus on strategic planning processes while also facilitating such emerging initiatives as tiag’s Technology and Innovations Strike Team, comprising tiag leaders and innovators who develop leading technological solutions that enhance and elevate customer missions, while creating demand for new business opportunities.

“Neil and I have been involved with the success of this company since the early days and we’ve complemented each other very well, fine-tuning our individual strengths to advance critical initiatives for our company, our customers and employees,” says Modi. “Now, as the ultimate decision makers for tiag’s future, we’re expanding upon and pushing to the forefront the new ideas for solutions and capabilities that we’ve been working on for the past couple of years.”

“tiag has always been focused on innovation, and this year we’re doubling down on that by heightening our quality processes and simplifying delivery of services,” says Lampton. “Equally important — having watched and learned from our illustrious co-founders as we’ve come up through the ranks all these years — our goal is to maintain the unique, close-knit company culture that has made tiag successful and inspired our desire to continue being a part of this great company.”

tiag employees honored their outgoing co-founders and celebrated tiag’s new leaders during a year-end all-hands company event. Together, Lampton and Modi have amplified tiag’s work and broadened the company’s client base of work for commercial, federal government, military, municipal and state government organizations.
