Providing solutions to the world’s most complex data management and recovery challenges
Tami Fratis is the CEO of IPR International - the Information Protection and Recovery Company, an IT infrastructure and services company that is based in Delaware and serves clients around the world. True to its name, IPR designs application solutions meant for complex technology challenges and focused on reliability and security. The company has provided solutions for a wide range of large, multilayered organizations such as billion-dollar financial institutions, healthcare networks, government agencies, and numerous public and private businesses. In addition to her role at IPR, Tami has served on the investment advisory committee for Ben Franklin Technology Partners, on the State of Delaware’s investment review board, as as director and chairman of the Philadelphia Alliance for Capital and Technologies (PACT).
EDWIN WARFIELD: You’re very active in giving back to the community. What kinds of causes and organizations are you involved with?
TAMI FRATIS: I care about mental and behavioral health, I care about education, and I care about girls as it relates to science and mathematics and sports.
I’m involved with NHS, which is Northwestern Human Services. It’s a very large, over $500 million behavioral health nonprofit. We have 19 autism schools. We have programs for people who are addictive. We have programs for people who are intellectually disabled, as well as developmentally and physically disabled. I’ve been on the board of trustees for 17 years.
I also care about, as I mentioned, education. I have been very involved with the Greater Philadelphia Venture Group, which educates people and entrepreneurs about finance and also about starting businesses. I have been on the board of Wilson College which was an all-girls college and is now coed. I have been the head of the Wharton Alumni Association, again part of Penn, and I do help the Graduate School of Education at Penn as well. I’ve taught at Rutgers in the law school, Penn at the engineering school, and Bryn Mawr at the entrepreneurial program, so I give my time to educational institutions and I serve on boards of nonprofits.
