Chris Tighe is an award-winning, crime-fighting, straight-talking leader and senior advisor. With over 25 years of Federal government (and private industry) experience, spanning the U.S. Postal Service, Treasury, and Homeland Security Investigations, Chris has stories to tell, and lots of lessons he's learned along the way.
