HR Tech Outlook | Friday, December 17, 2021

Fremont, CA: Sikich is a global company that specializes in technology-enabled professional services. With more than 1,000 employees, Sikich employs a diverse portfolio of technology solutions to deliver advanced digital strategies.

Sikich has added a workforce risk management team spearheaded by nationally recognized threat and violence risk management experts Matthew Doherty and Nathan Hunt. The team is expected to help organizations across government sectors and industries build safer work environments free from violence, intimidation, harassment, and other disruptive behaviors. The scope of the team's services includes policy and program assessment and development, training, as well as threat management.

"As a former law enforcement officer, the safety and well-being of a workforce is not just my priority as a business leader, but also something I am deeply passionate about," commented Sikich CEO Chris Geier. "I share this passion with Matt and Nate, whose careers have focused on the protection of others. I am excited to have them on our team."

Doherty is expected to lead the workforce risk management team as managing director. He has joined Sikich after leading the threat and violence risk management practice at Jensen Hughes, formerly Hillard Heintze, where he provided consulting services to top government agencies such as the Departments of Defense, Homeland Security, and the Social Security Administration, as well as prominent private sector organizations. Prior to that, Doherty worked for the US Secret Service for more than 21 years, retiring as special agent in charge of the National Threat Assessment Center after serving as White House liaison, providing daily briefs on threat investigations and coordinating protective intelligence investigations.

"As leaders continue to prioritize workforce health, security and support, our team will leverage and enhance Sikich's existing advisory services – from human capital management to cybersecurity," Doherty said. "As part of the Sikich team, I look forward to helping organizations improve their readiness and resiliency in protecting valuable human and operational assets."

Nathan Hunt is expected to serve as the team's senior director of workforce risk management. Before joining Sikich, Hunt, like Doherty, worked in the Hillard Heintze threat and violence risk management practice, focusing on threat assessment and management and the development of counter insider risk strategies. He previously worked for the US Department of Homeland Security as a federal law enforcement officer and as a Special Forces officer and detachment commander for the US Army.
