National Interest Security Co. LLC has named Andrew Maner chief executive officer.
The Fairfax, Va.-based company provides information technology, information management and management technology consulting services to the intelligence community and other government agencies, including the Defense, Energy and Homeland Security departments. More than half of NISC's 850 employees hold top secret or higher clearances.
Maner's appointment combines the right balance of strategic leadership and hands-on experience that NISC needs as it continues to grow, said Thomas Campbell, NISC chairman and president of its private equity owner, DC Capital Partners LLC.
NISC announced earlier this week that it had acquired Athenyx Inc., a Columbia, Md., business specializing in IT services to the intelligence community.
Maner previously was president of ABM LLC, a Washington company specializing in federal strategic sales advice, marketing and message delivery. From January 2004 to March 2006, he was chief financial officer at DHS, where he was responsible for strategic planning, budget, finance and investments. He has also held several senior executive positions in the private and federal sectors, including special assistant to the United Nations envoy in Mogadishu during the U.S. aid effort for Somalia in 1993.
Maner has a bachelor's degree from Purdue University and a master's in business administration from the J.L. Kellogg Graduate School of Management at Northwestern University.
