ALEXANDRIA, Va., December 06, 2021--(BUSINESS WIRE)--IDEMIA National Security Solutions (NSS), an subsidiary of IDEMIA, the world’s leading biometric and identity solutions provider, announced today the appointment of three new vice presidents to their executive leadership team. Sandra Joyner Williams joins NSS as the vice president of Department of Defense (DoD) and Intelligence Community (IC) operations, Marg Schulenberg has been promoted to the vice president of security and business operations, and Mike Ronayne will take on the role of vice president of federal civilian operations.

"We are honored to have such distinguished individuals join the NSS executive leadership team. They bring an extremely robust knowledge base to the organization and will play a critical role in our growing success and deployment of secure identity and biometrics solutions," said Andrew Boyd, CEO of NSS.

As vice president of DoD and IC operations, Williams brings over 25 years of experience working with the DoD, intelligence communities and government organizations in the federal and civil arenas. Williams’ experience includes successful program execution of aircraft, enterprise IT, satellite and ship platforms.

"I’m eager to hit the ground running with the NSS team. NSS solutions are market-leading, and it should be no surprise that their solutions are in high demand. I’m looking forward to taking NSS capabilities into new markets and expand on their value propositions," Williams said.

Schulenberg already plays a critical role within NSS managing security operations as the facility security officer (FSO), managing quality certification efforts, contract support and procurement. She will now lead those efforts as the vice president of security and business operations, with a focus on growing certifications and cultivating best-in-class organization operations and solutions.

"This new position will enable me to fully support NSS in providing the most secure and innovative solutions to the U.S. government. I’ve seen firsthand how critical NSS secure biometric solutions are, and I’m honored to step into this position and join the incredible leadership team," Schulenberg said.

Ronayne came to NSS from years in the identity industry, making him an expert in secure credentials, biometrics, ePassports and security printing. As the vice president of federal civilian operations, Ronayne will continue his role leading cross-functional research and product development to support NSS’s growing list of credential customers. He will also lead the rollout of the organization’s newly launched edge identity and biometric solutions.

"NSS is in an incredible position today to innovate and transform the way our customers verify and use physical, digital and electronic credentials and biometrics. I am honored to join leadership at NSS and be a member of the team," Ronayne said.
