Madhu Beriwal, IEM President and CEO2020 is an exciting year for IEM!

The year began with headquarters moving into an expanded office space, and this February, IEM celebrates our 35th anniversary, a testament to our ongoing commitment to evolve and grow as the world around us does.

In an era of disruptive technology, it is important to be innovative. IEM has been innovating in emergency management, homeland security and national security for 35 years.

We partner with our clients to address the challenges facing our nation and the world, and to develop new solutions to tackle these complex challenges. IEM is dedicated to building a safe, secure and resilient world.

We have grown from one employee to a large, respected company with hundreds of full-time employees and 11 office locations. We have evolved from a small startup to a leader in emergency management and a pioneer in the industry. I am proud of our accomplishments over the past 35 years and am excited for what is to come.

We have achieved much in the past 35 years, marked by our diligence and the ability to combine experience, enthusiasm and innovation to better serve our clients and produce outcomes that matter.

I am proud to celebrate this milestone and look forward to what the next 35 years have in store. Stay tuned for our special anniversary events and engagements throughout the year.
