“It is a tremendous honor to take the reins as the CEO of Intelligent Waves, and I look forward to helping the company fulfill its full potential through innovation in the government’s most demanding and critical areas,” said Crescenzo.
Crescenzo will assume the CEO role from Intelligent Waves Founder Jared Shepard, who will continue to lead the company as chairman of the board as well as lead Hypori, Inc. as president and CEO after spinning off the company in 2021.
Shepard shared his enthusiasm for Crescenzo becoming CEO after supporting aggressive growth and profitability for the company over his first two years to help Intelligent Waves mature into a well respected market leader in the federal space.
“By initially hiring Tony Crescenzo as President in 2020, I set a strategic goal of elevating IW’s growth trajectory and scalability to the next level. It has been awesome to see how Tony Crescenzo’s leadership has materialized my vision for the company,” said Shepard. “Tony’s high-energy leadership style and ability to recruit top management talent has enabled us to maximize the value and impact of our company.”
Intelligent Waves has evolved from a two-person team in 2006 at its inception and transformed into a thriving, award-winning business with over two hundred employees. Intelligent Waves has received numerous accolades and numerous awards across the federal landscape.
Intelligent Waves has recently successfully launched several innovative and disruptive cybersecurity solutions that serve the Defense and Intelligence Community, including GRAYPATH, an ultra-secure next-generation VPN, and Phantom, an award-winning cyber defense solution for the most demanding and secure communications.
“Intelligent Waves is at the forefront of innovation in support of real-world mission outcomes, and I am proud to lead such an exceptional organization,” Crescenzo added.
