Michael Santelli Named System High CFO, Corporate Development EVP

Michael Santelli

Michael Santelli, former CEO of OMNIPLEX World Services, has joined Chantilly, Va.-based security firm System High as chief financial officer and executive vice president of corporate development.

He brings to the role 25 years of leadership experience at private equity-backed companies that provide security and intelligence services for government agencies, System High said Monday.

Santelli’s experience in intelligence, defense and commercial sectors “will be integral to driving our growth and implementing the systems and operations that create value for our employees, customers, and partners,” said Rob Howe, president and CEO of System High.

Prior to OMNIPLEX, Santelli spent more than a decade at USIS and held senior leadership roles such as president of information management division and VP of strategy and corporate development. He also served as a senior associate at PwC and as a district sales engineer at Calgon.

Santelli’s appointment came nearly four months after Enlightenment Capital made an investment in System High, which offers cybersecurity, security engineering, proactive protection and counterintelligence services to government and commercial clients.
