PRINCETON, NJ – July 09, 2015 – IXP Corporation – a prominent national public safety and emergency response provider—is proud to announce that Thomas K. Swietek, a seasoned finance executive, has joined its management team as its newest controller.  This significant addition further strengthens IXP’s financial management and analysis expertise, positioning the firm for continued exponential growth on a national scale.

Amy Onder, IXP’s chief of business operations and general counsel, says “Tom Swietek has a unique perspective as a performance leader, both within the finance function and throughout the company.  He will help us further enhance our relationship with our clients because he views business from the ‘outside-in’—from our clients’ perspective.  This outlook has been honed from his experience working in professional services companies.”

Thomas Swietek, CPA, MBA, CGMA, brings an impressive array of credentials to his work. He holds a Masters of Business Administration (Executive MBA program) in Finance from Rutgers University and a Bachelor of Science in Accounting from Rider University. He is a member of the American Institute of CPAs and the New Jersey Society of CPAs.  Tom is also a Chartered Global Management Accountant (CGMA).

William Metro, IXP’s chief executive officer states: “Tom is a true professional; his deep financial and leadership experience will be a strong complement to our executive team.  He will be an invaluable asset to us as we continue to drive our growth, as the call for our services increases.  More and more municipalities are seeing the advantage in our ability to offer financial predictability and ease the burden of unfunded pensions and other costs. Tom is uniquely positioned to help us maintain our adaptability and agility in today’s client-centric public safety world.”

Ms. Onder adds, “In time, Tom will develop an in-depth understanding of our business and play a major role in shaping the strategic and operational focus of IXP.  I look forward to working with him as a leader and trusted advisor as we continue to innovate and grow. He is particularly well-suited to meet the company’s transformational efforts and will be part of our strategic thinking from the ground up. We have a bright future ahead of us.”

Swietek’s hire follows IXP’s strong financial performance in the first half of 2015.  IXP’s model for emergency call centers – IXP SAIF® 911 – has changed the paradigm in this sector nationally.  IXP now has its centers operating across multiple states throughout the U.S. and has secured $40 million in signed contracts through 2019.
