FAIRFAX, Va., Dec. 03, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Information Analysis Incorporated (NASDAQ: IAIC), a leading information technology services and modernization company, announced today that it is restructuring and reorganizing its legacy services business and new Board appointments to be better aligned with its vision for future growth.
Under the reorganization, IAI’s existing professional services business will be combined with its Tellenger subsidiary. Tellenger will have a separate advisory board, led by Stan Reese and Charles May. Mr. Reese has more than 25 years of senior management experience, including over a decade of strategic development and planning. Prior to serving as President of IAI, he served briefly as its CEO and was Chief Operating Officer for 20 years. Lieutenant General Charles A. May USAF (Retired) is a consultant focusing on national security and defense conversion issues. In 1992, he retired from the Air Force where he last served as Assistant Vice Chief of Staff at the Headquarters, US Air Force in Washington D.C. He is a graduate of the US Air Force Academy, where he once served as Associate Professor of Political Science.
This reorganization creates two open spots on the IAI Board of Directors, which will be filled by James C. “Chip” DiPaula and Rear Admiral (Ret.) Paul Becker. Both appointees bring leadership and expertise in the intelligence community, technology, and marketing.
IAI CEO Jamie Benoit noted, ‘’Since joining IAI three months ago I have been working with our board and senior executives to establish a proper foundation for growth. In providing Tellenger with its own advisory board, and moving IAI’s government services business into Tellenger, we are ensuring that we will be able to leverage Tellenger’s capabilities and maximize our opportunities for long-term growth. Stan Reese and Charlie May continue to be key leaders in our company and by stepping into new roles they are putting Tellenger on a path to big things. Upon the imminent closing of the acquisition of Gray Matters we will operate separate software and government services businesses which we believe is the best way to maximize long-term shareholder value.”
