Maximus elevates new federal cyber practice leader Chino

The two-decade industry veteran will lead the development and management of cyber offerings to federal clients.

Maximus has promoted one of its executives to the newly-created role of vice president for federal cybersecurity in Tim Meyers, a two-decade market veteran who joined the company four years ago.

He is tasked with developing and managing Maximus’ cybersecurity solutions across all of its federal clients, the company said Wednesday.

In his most prior role, Meyers led Maximus’ work on a project to help the Securities and Exchange Commission upgrade its “EDGAR” system used for storing reports and other documents publicly-traded companies are required to post.

Meyers led a team responsible for implementing new methods for protecting and securing data, Maximus said.

“The tremendous growth within our federal segment has been driven by our ability to further expand our technology capabilities and solidify our position as an established leader in federal IT,” Maximus’ federal general manager Teresa Weipert said in a release. “Cybersecurity is woven into all of our programs, and we turn to Tim to lead our development of cybersecurity solutions as we continue to meet the most pressing challenges for federal agencies.”

Prior to Maximus, Meyers held leadership roles in cybersecurity at the federal practices of IBM and Accenture.
