Our History

A minority, woman-owned business, IEM was founded by current President and CEO Ms. Madhu Beriwal in February of 1985, and was one of the first companies in the world to focus exclusively on emergency management. Ms. Beriwal recognized a distinct need to integrate science and objectivity into decisions about public protection, moving preparedness from a subjective foundation to one based on quantitative data. That vision from more than 30 years ago built the company that today is helping government agencies and the private sector save lives. Since inception, IEM has expanded past disaster preparedness, response, and recovery to offer a range of services and solutions that also strengthen homeland defense, counterterrorism, and public agency performance.
