US-based global crime-fighting software and services company Wynyard Group has appointed a former FBI science and technology executive to its board.

Louis Grever, who will join Wynyard as an independent director, is a former Executive Assistant Director Science and Technology Branch with the FBI and is already an existing member of Wynyard’s high-calibre Advisory Council.

During his 24-year career with the FBI Grever’s experience included leading, planning, coordinating and directing FBI field technical operations including delivering technical capabilities to solve and prevent serious crime, cyber crime and counter terrorism investigations. And, as Deputy Assistant Director, Grever was in charge of the Special Technologies and Applications to develop and deploy innovative analytical tools and capabilities for the FBI.

Wynyard Chair, Murray Horn, said Grever had already made a significant contribution to Wynyard Group “bringing a new dimension of technical, operational, tactical and strategic insight to our product development, U.S. and global business growth aspirations. His involvement with Wynyard as a Board member will prove to be invaluable."

Horn said that, in the year ahead, Wynyard – which has offices in Australia - will remain focused on the government, financial services and critical infrastructure markets, expanding existing US operations, and also continue investment in its channel partner program.

“Louis brings an understanding of Wynyard’s current business, the fast-growing markets it operates in and the challenges clients face. This coupled with entrepreneurial success and a passion for innovation, and business success will complement our board.”
