LSI Appoints Former FBI Agent to Board of Directors

LIGATT Security International has appointed former FBI Agent William Maxberry as the company's newest chairman for its board of directors.

Maxberry graduated from the University of Kentucky with a bachelor’s degree in sociology. As a former FBI agent and former supervisor in the CART unit of the FBI, Maxberry has experience implementing security programs that has increased client awareness, decreased network exposure and strengthened overall organization security. His outstanding leadership abilities assisted him in his role of leading and directing the field operation of all FBI forensic digital laboratories west of the Mississippi River. 

"I look forward to the opportunity to assist LIGATT Security in achieving its company goals for the year 2011 and beyond," said Maxberry.

From 1987-1995, Maxberry worked in white collar crimes, in addition to working on the bank fraud squad, government contract fraud squad, and the FBI's first computer fraud squad. In more recent years, he worked on the technical squad, in the counter intelligence department, and in the engineering research facility (laboratory division). Gaining hands-on experience developing secure network designs, systems analysis/development and full lifecycle project management led Maxberry to develop effective policies and procedures, as well as project documentation and milestones.

"The addition of Mr. Maxberry to LSI's board of directors ensures that the company will continue to benefit from a diversity of perspectives," said LIGATT CEO Gregory Evans. "Mr. Maxberry brings a balanced perspective through his strong understanding of traditional businesses, and I'm honored to have him on our board."
