The Mission Essential Group Launches Mission Essential Intelligence Solutions (MEIS)

HERNDON, Virginia, July 9, 2020 – The Mission Essential Group has united its two intelligence business units, IMT LLC and Mission Essential’s Intel Analytics organization, to form Mission Essential Intelligence Solutions (MEIS). The new intel center of excellence will make an immediate impact on Mission Essential’s already substantive intel business in the rapidly growing $200B intelligence and C4ISR fields.

Over its 17-year history, The Mission Essential Group has successfully recruited more than 47,000 skilled professionals to mission critical assignments with almost half of those serving the intel space. Additionally, its IMT business unit has been the lead provider of technical engineering support to the Integrated Broadcast Service (IBS) since 2006. The company’s intelligence sector has been its fastest-growing line of business for several years, and MEIS will capitalize on its experience and top talent to enable further acceleration of its expansion. Accompanying the creation of MEIS is a new, more fully integrated corporate structure that will streamline the alignment of its world-class information management system engineering, software development, information assurance, and system sustainment capabilities with its expeditionary and operational experience across the Department of Defense and Intelligence Communities.

The Mission Essential Group has tapped Tom Middleton, a well-known industry leader in the beltway, to head its latest expansion as president. Previously, Tom served for more than 35 years in a progressive career with General Dynamics Information Technology (GDIT) and most recently served as their Vice President Business Development and Strategy, Intelligence and Homeland Security Division (IHS). During his tenure with GDIT, Tom built rapid and sustainable growth across several areas of specialization and often with industry-leading win rates. His significant expertise within the Intelligence Community and the Department of Defense, demonstrated history of structuring and winning complex business opportunities, and participation in several key D.C. Intel focus groups will afford MEIS strong competitive positioning in the market.

“Mission Essential Intelligence Solutions will be a leader in the intelligence field. Its creation demonstrates the Mission Essential Group’s commitment to serving its current and future government partners in the Intelligence Community as well as growth and innovation in the Information Technology and Services industry,” said Middleton.

Gregory K. Miller, The Mission Essential Group’s founder and Chairman, commented, “The creation of MEIS completes another checkmark in our Strategic Brand Growth Plan. Our selection of Tom Middleton as its president places an accomplished key executive at the helm with the experience, knowledge, and relationships required to take this line of business to the next level”.

The creation of MEIS is the latest in a series of strategic steps forward for The Mission Essential Group. The organization has recently committed significant investments to further diversification in the areas of intelligence, language, human capital management, and cybersecurity, leaning on the 17 years of knowledge and experience gained through the successful execution of more than 100,000 missions. The Mission Essential Group’s growing Language and Logistics Solutions line of business will continue to be headed by Al Pisani. Pisani has served as president since 2018.

Miller, is an agile, trusted partner to the Defense and Intelligence communities, friendly foreign governments, and select private sector segments.
