FAIRFAX, Virginia, December 3, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) – Information Analysis Incorporated (NASDAQ: AICA), a leading IT services and modernization company, today announced it is restructuring and reorganizing its legacy services business and new board appointments to better align with his vision for future growth.
As part of the reorganization, IAI’s existing professional services business will be merged with its subsidiary Tellenger. Tellenger will have a separate advisory board, chaired by Stan Reese and Charles May. Mr. Reese has over 25 years of senior leadership experience, including over a decade in strategic development and planning. Prior to serving as President of IAI, he briefly served as CEO and was Chief Operating Officer for 20 years. Lieutenant-General Charles A. May USAF (retired) is a consultant specializing in national security and defense conversion issues. In 1992, he retired from the Air Force where he last served as the Assistant Vice Chief of Staff at US Air Force Headquarters in Washington DC.

The reorganization creates two vacancies on the IAI Board of Directors, which will be filled by James C. “Chip” DiPaula and Rear Admiral (Retired) Paul Becker. The two appointees demonstrate leadership and expertise in the intelligence community, technology and marketing.
IAI CEO Jamie Benoit said, “Since joining IAI three months ago, I have been working with our Board of Directors and senior executives to establish an appropriate foundation for growth. By providing Tellenger with its own advisory board and by moving the government services business from IAI to Tellenger, we ensure that we will be able to leverage Tellenger’s capabilities and maximize our long-term growth opportunities. Stan Reese and Charlie May continue to be key leaders of our business and taking on new roles they put Tellenger on the path to great things. With the impending closing of the Gray Matters Acquisition, we will operate separate software and government services businesses that we believe are the best way to maximize long-term shareholder value. “
