Michael Wilmer Joins Thacher Associates LLC as Chief Operating Officer
Thacher Associates LLC, a K2 Intelligence, Inc. company and the construction and real estate industry leader in integrity and regulatory compliance, is pleased to announce that Michael Wilmer has joined as Chief Operating Officer. As part of this leadership transition, Joseph Deluca, the former Vice President and COO will become President. Thomas D. (Toby) Thacher remains Chief Executive Officer. Mr. Wilmer joins Thacher from Booz Allen Hamilton where he provided strategic analysis and operational planning to the Joint Chiefs of Staff and other elements of the Department of Defense. Prior to Booz Allen, Michael spent 26 years in the United States Army in a broad range of operations, engineering and analysis assignments. “Michael brings tremendous value and expertise to Thacher with more than 30 years of leadership experience and the ability to operate fluidly between setting strategic direction, managing operations, leading day-to-day execution, and dealing with crises when they arise,” said Mr. Thacher. ”His in-depth experience in directing and implementing multi-million dollar analytics programs will enhance our ability to deliver solutions to clients that identify systemic problems, enhance their reputations and protect the bottom line.” Thacher Associates has provided construction integrity monitoring on such high profile projects as the post 9/11 Ground Zero clean-up, the ongoing rebuilding of the World Trade Center, the construction of the new Yankee Stadium, The East Side Access and the Second Avenue subway lines, Columbia University’s Manhattanville Project, and the building of headquarters for such corporate giants as the Bank of America, AOL/Time Warner, Brookfield Properties, I.A.C and The Canadian Imperial Bank of Commerce. “Each year corporations, regulatory agencies and other organizations lose billions of dollars from breaches of fiduciary duties, self-dealing by untrustworthy employees, and unethical actions by unscrupulous or unqualified vendors and contractors,” said Mr. Wilmer. “This is why Thacher created the integrity monitoring industry and has consistently delivered value to its clients. I am looking forward to helping the company grow its important mission.” The addition of Mr. Wilmer as COO enables Thacher Associates to pursue a strategy of national and international growth while ensuring the continuous high quality performance for clients.
