URL Integration Announces Jim Pingel & Amir Holmes in Key Client Facing Roles

DENVER, CO--(Marketwire - March 16, 2011) -  URL Integration, an IT consulting company providing system integration services to justice and public safety agencies, announces the addition of Amir Holmes as Senior Business Analyst and Jim Pingel as Account Manager.

Amir Holmes comes to URL with a strong background in criminal justice and information technology and is responsible for the implementation of URL's strategic planning-related engagements. Prior to joining URL, Holmes spent eight years with SEARCH, the National Consortium of Justice Research and Statistics, where he was instrumental in the development of the Justice Information Exchange Model (JIEM). In this role, he worked with state and local justice practitioners to plan and implement integrated justice technologies. Prior to that, Holmes was a Deputy District Attorney in Yolo County, California.

Jim Pingel is responsible for advocating and offering guidance on standards and best practices to URL's clientele. Pingel brings experience as a criminal justice practitioner with the State of Wisconsin, where he held two key positions -- Director of the Wisconsin Integrated Justice Information Sharing and Deputy Director of the Wisconsin Sentencing Commission. In those roles, he cultivated and maintained relationships with judges, legislators, local elected officials, and CIOs. Pingel also served as a National Information Exchange Model (NIEM) Fellow with the Integrated Justice Information Systems (IJIS) Institute.

"URL is thrilled to welcome Amir and Jim to our team," says Dave Usery, URL's President and CEO. "It's rare to find individuals with both a solid understanding of technology as well as real-world experience working as practitioners in the criminal justice arena.
