Altamira Operations Team Led by Intelligence Community Veterans Business Wire MCLEAN, Va. -- June 25, 2013 Altamira Technologies Corporation, the result of a merger between Near Infinity Corporation and Invertix Corporation, announced its new operations team today. Altamira President and CEO Art Hurtado lauded the lineup, saying, “Our elite team is full of experienced leaders from across the National Security community and I could not be more confident in their ability to lead this company through the next phase of our growth and maturity.” A member of the Invertix senior management team since the winter of 2011, Deborah Beckworth was recently promoted to Senior Vice President as she assumes responsibility of the company’s largest of four business units. A retired U.S. Army Colonel, she brings over 30 years of combined military intelligence and corporate experience to the company having served in command and staff positions on the national and international stage. Since retiring from the military in 2006, Ms. Beckworth has served in senior roles with both small and large companies, all in the defense sector. Mark Greer joined Altamira in May 2013 as a Senior Vice President and business unit manager. After a distinguished career in the United States Navy which saw Mr. Greer retire with a rank of Captain, Mr. Greer served as both Acting Chief Information Officer and as Deputy Chief Information Officer at the Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA). His responsibilities included operational oversight of all information technology and related management programs at DIA and within the DoD Intelligence Information System (DoDIIS) community. Peter Kane serves Altamira as Vice President and business unit manager of Altamira’s intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance (ISR) portfolio. He has a broad technical background engaged in the full life cycle development of national level programs from basic research through operations and sustainment. He has lead teams through the development and integration of space and ground systems enabling first-of-kind capabilities in communications and remote sensing. Most notably, Mr. Kane will lead the company’s business in its new Dayton, OH office. Mike Bergeron retired this past April from public service after serving for 27 years in a number of leadership capacities, including multiple overseas assignments, within the Intelligence Community. During his government career he initiated and developed a new cadre of officers to provide overseas support, reduced cost and eliminated duplication by creating and implementing a five year IT acquisition strategy. He is widely regarded in his former agency as a pioneer in the application of "Alpha Contracting" which resulted in the dramatic acceleration of contracting timelines. He is a PMI certified Project Management Professional and will lead the fourth business unit located at Altamira’s Reston, VA office location. Altamira also welcomes two new Vice Presidents to lead the Human Resources and Finance functions, respectively. Mr. Ray Khuo now serves as the Vice President of Human Resources after joining the company in March of this year. Mr. Khuo is an experienced business leader who has amassed 20 years of accomplishments in Human Resources management and operations for both the commercial and federal contracting sectors. Immediately prior to joining Altamira, he was the Director of Human Resources - Intel, Civilian, and Cyber Solutions for QinetiQ North America with annual revenues exceeding $250 million. Gary Kedda will provide leadership to Altamira as the Vice President of Finance and Administration. Mr. Kedda joined Altamira as a result of the merger where he previously served as Near Infinity’s CFO and COO. In that role, he managed day-to-day operations, human resources, contracts, cash management, financial reporting and budgeting, forecasting, and strategic planning. He has over 24 years of experience in accounting and finance in both the public and private sectors.
