After 24 years of operational military experience, Dan Engle changed course and founded AccessAgility, from which came IHS. Today, as a Principal at IHS, he focuses on international business development and strategic partnerships.
Dan has provided consulting services in both military and civilian information management, in addition to shared awareness, crisis response, and the design of collaborative environments.
During the tsunami relief effort in Thailand he analyzed the civil-military communication boundary for the Office of the Chief of Naval Operations (CNO) and for the Office of the Secretary of Defense. After Katrina, he served as the Joint Force Maritime Component Commander (JFMCC) Information Manager for the Communications Officer (the J6).
He’s also provided consulting services to the Space and Naval Warfare Systems Command (SPAWAR) and the Naval Post Graduate School for the Trident Warrior 06 experiment in Homeland Security. He was a primary sponsor of the International Disaster Response Demonstration called Strong Angel 3 in 2006.
His special interests include Information Assurance, Wireless Intrusion Prevention and Detection, Humanitarian Systems, and Disaster Risk Mitigation.
While at AccessAgility Dan created the first commercial Humanitarian Systems Group dedicated to the humanitarian sciences. That Humanitarian Systems Group, which in turn became Infinitum Humanitarian Systems, was created to explore emerging risks, new engineering designs, and exponential technologies. IHS now brings each of those to bear on reducing risk and increasing resilience throughout the most vulnerable areas of the world.
Dan lives with his wife, Lisa, in Greenville, South Carolina.
