ISPA Appoints a Chief Strategy Officer

Tampa, FL, January 31, 2018 - ISPA Technology announced the creation and appointment of a Chief Strategy Officer. ISPA recognizes the value of long term strategies that are led and managed by one dedicated focal point. This new position, reporting directly to ISPA's CEO, Brian Bleeze, will be filled for the former Director of the Combatant Command / Intelligence Community Division founder, Michael Grochol. Mr. Grochol previously led the creation of a division within ISPA in 2015 and since then that division's sustained growth has allowed it to account for more than 50% of ISPA's personnel and annual revenue.

Mr. Bleeze gave insight into what caused him to create the new position and move Mr. Grochol into the role: "Mike has been key in ISPAs significant growth over the past four years. The time has come for him to take the next step forward in his career, and I couldn't be more pleased and supportive. His strategic thinking capabilities, strong business acumen and relationship skills will be tremendous assets in this role."

Mr. Grochol is extremely excited about the new role, "The fact is I've managed to be extremely blessed in this industry. I have always loved being part of the intersection of defense and technology, it is really the combination of two incredibly complex and high impact industries. I've been fortunate to have been connected with an incredible group of mentors, teammates and customers that could see how passionate I was and given me the opportunity to succeed. Brian and Brad Joelson, our CTO, really gave me an amazing opportunity when I joined ISPA almost 4 years ago. To have them trust me with the strategic vision of their company is an honor. The culture they have built here is truly amazing, and the people who work here are brilliant. I'm really excited to go out and meet with current and potential customers and establish long term, 'strategic,' relationships that can let us do the thing we love the most, build technology that can make a difference."

ISPA Technology is a small business founded in 2003. ISPA's notable accomplishments include being honored 4 years in a row, from 2014-2017, as one of the Inc. 5000 "Fastest Growing Companies." ISPA was honored by the Tampa Bay Business Journal as a 2017 "Best Places To Work," and the Washington Business Journal as one of the "Fast 50," fastest growing companies in DC Metro Area.
