Morrisville, NC, July 12, 2022 — IEM, a woman- and minority-owned global consulting firm, is excited to announce two additions to the Digital Services (DS) sector – Nicholas “Nick” Lattanzi as the Vice President for Digital Services and Dr. Andrew Coffey as the Director of National Security Technologies. These new positions signal IEM’s continued expansion of using data and technology to improve performance and deliveries in emergency management, homeland security, national security, public health, and more.

In the new role of Vice President for Digital Services, Lattanzi will oversee overall operations and business development for IEM’s Digital Services (DS) Sector, leading the growing team as they continue to enhance the company’s capabilities and projects ranging from low-code applications and management systems to geospatial services and emerging technologies, creating new opportunities for growth, and leveraging the company’s current expertise. Previously, Lattanzi served in various leadership roles for businesses in the government services industries, ranging in size from small businesses to Fortune 500 companies.

“IEM consistently offers high-level technical expertise that businesses and government agencies need to address the challenges their communities face during an emergency or crisis,” said Ted Lemcke, IEM’s Chief Technology Officer. “We’re excited to welcome Nick to the IEM Digital Services team to expand the innovative solutions we provide to our clients. He offers an abundance of knowledge that will undoubtedly propel the DS team to the next level.”

Lattanzi has a proven track record of securing major contracts and possesses over 20 years of experience working in a variety of sectors including government, emergency management, technology, utilities, homeland security, public health, energy, transportation, law enforcement, environmental, defense, intelligence, and facilities management. Lattanzi’s experience leading humanitarian assistance and disaster response efforts both stateside and around the globe make him an incredible asset to the IEM Team.

“I look forward to expanding the Digital Services sector’s business opportunities in different industries, and I hope to continue IEM’s commitment to delivering results-driven solutions for our clients,” Lattanzi said. “I am honored to lead the already accomplished DS team that IEM developed.”

Dr. Coffey is an expert in homeland intelligence and information sharing with nearly 15 years of professional experience at the highest levels of government and the private sector, including the White House and the Fortune 200. He will lead IEM’s development of new and emerging technologies that allow governments to support critical missions in defense, intelligence, homeland security, and law enforcement.

“Dr. Coffey will be an asset to the Digital Services team,” Lemcke said. “He is recognized as a reliable expert with the invaluable skill of effectively applying his knowledge and experience to real-world situations. I am confident that together with Nick, Andrew will expand our client base in the national security sector.”

Previously, Dr. Coffey was a senior manager with Marsh McLennan focused on global business resiliency. While there, he supported the firm’s operations in over 100 countries, including the return to offices for over 90,000 employees during the COVID-19 pandemic and business continuity during the Russia-Ukraine conflict.

“I am thrilled to contribute to the expanding Digital Services teams at IEM,” Dr. Coffey said. “My background prepared me to return to IEM in this leadership position to use technology to advance national security as well as offer guidance in risk management, supply chain security, and cybersecurity.”
