Stottlemyer succeeds retiring chairman Michael Daniels
LMI announced today that Todd Stottlemyer, chief executive officer (CEO) of health information technology firm CNSI, will succeed Michael Daniels as chairman of its board of directors, effective January 1, 2019. Daniels, a widely respected executive and thought leader on technology, innovation, and defense for over 30 years, has announced he will retire at the end of the year.
“Under Mike’s leadership, LMI pursued a strategy that allowed LMI to better serve our clients. We look forward to working with Todd as we build upon this success to enhance and expand our support to other federal clients. It is rare to have the baton passed between such exemplary leaders,” LMI President and CEO Dave Zolet said.
Stottlemyer, a member of LMI’s board since 2015, recently joined CNSI as CEO after stepping down as CEO of the Inova Health System’s Center for Personalized Health. An active member in the Northern Virginia technology community, Stottlemyer has spent most of his career advancing innovation and IT within the healthcare industry and with public sector clients.
Daniels, who joined the board in 2007, helped guide LMI to unprecedented growth and transformation, with revenues nearly doubling during his board tenure. Beyond LMI, Daniels participated in dozens of corporate and philanthropic organizations. He is a former chair of the Northern Virginia Technology Council (NVTC), a former chair of the Virginia Chamber of Commerce, and a former president and chair of the Boys Scouts of America National Capital Area Council.
“Mike has had a lasting impact on our organization. Importantly, he embodies servant leadership,” Zolet said. “We owe him a debt of gratitude for his leadership, vision, and sage counsel.”
In recognition of Daniels’ longstanding commitment to LMI’s people and mission, the organization has established the Mike Daniels Luminary Award for Innovation. The award, which will recognize an LMI employee who exemplifies Daniels’ legacy of groundbreaking approaches to the business of technology and innovation, will be presented annually beginning in 2019.
“It is an honor and privilege to have been so deeply involved in an organization of such high character and commitment to service,” Daniels said. “The people at LMI have a genuine desire to improve the management of government; it is truly inspiring. LMI has a very bright future, and I will be rooting for them all the way.”
As senior vice president of SAIC in the mid-1990s, Daniels spearheaded its acquisition of Network Solutions (NSI); he subsequently engineered one of the largest technology sector equity offerings ever when NSI was sold to Verisign. He is also a former chairman and CEO of Mobile365. He currently serves on the boards of a number of publicly traded and private companies in the technology and government services sector.
Daniels’ public service included roles with the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency, the U.S. Trade Representative’s International Investment Policy Advisory Commission, and the United Nations Educational Scientific and Cultural Organization. He also served as a senior White House advisor on international technology and as a senior advisor to the National Security Council. Daniels used his experiences to guide LMI to ever greater successes.
“Mike demonstrated uncommon commitment to LMI and its mission,” said Stottlemyer. “His personal investment in LMI’s well-being will benefit the organization for years to come. I am humbled by the opportunity to follow his example as LMI continues to foster innovation for the betterment of government.”
Stottlemyer previously served as board chair for NVTC and the Fairfax County (now Northern Virginia) Chamber of Commerce. He is a Venture Partner with Blue Delta Capital Partners and also serves on the board of IST Research.
