Storage and information management company Iron Mountain Inc. announced Jan. 6 that Michael Lewis has joined the company as Vice President and General Manager for Iron Mountain Government Services (IMGS). He will lead Iron Mountain’s portfolio of business for the federal government sector.
“We’re thrilled to add Michael’s extensive experience and expertise in serving the public sector to lead our government services business,” Iron Mountain U.S. Federal, Security and Legal Executive Vice President Ernest Cloutier said. “His background in leadership, relationship management and technology development in the public sector is a great fit for Iron Mountain to address the needs of federal agencies as we look to deliver solutions that balance the requirements for protecting information with unlocking the benefits it can provide. Michael provides tremendous value to the company and our federal customers, and we’re thrilled to have him leading our government solutions team.”
“This is an exciting time to join Iron Mountain,” Lewis said. “The company is poised to help federal agencies optimize their information management by protecting information assets, improving access and converting documents into valuable electronic information that help agencies meet their mission’s objectives. Right now, federal agencies need help in addressing the busy intersection of initiatives and looming deadlines surrounding information management, from the Managing Government Records Directive to the FDCCI Mandate and the ‘Reduce the Footprint’ policy. Each of these brings their own unique set of challenges, and Iron Mountain’s unique combination of information management expertise and trusted reputation for security can help solve these challenges. I look forward to playing a significant role in helping our federal customers realize their goals for improved information management across their enterprises.”
Lewis brings more than 30 years’ general management and 14 years government experience in the federal sector to the position. He joined Iron Mountain from Computer Sciences Corporation (now CSRA), where he served as general manager for the Defense Health Agency business. Prior to that, Lewis worked at Siemens, IBM and GE.
Lewis earned a Bachelor of Business Administration in Business Management from the University of Massachusetts at Amherst and has completed several executive management programs at Babson College, Duke University’s Fuqua School of Business and the GE Management development program.
