McLean, Virginia-based ZP Group, a provider of cyber security services and solutions, has added Bob Craig and Larry Pfeiffer to its board of directors. Craig is the founder and CEO of Centerman Capital while Pfeiffer is a senior adviser to The Chertoff Group, which backs ZP Group.



ZP Group, a leading provider of premium cybersecurity services and solutions, today announced that it has expanded its Board of Directors by two new members. Bob Craig, Founder and CEO of Centerman Capital and Larry Pfeiffer, Senior Advisor to The Chertoff Group, joined the Board and will provide strategic counsel to support ZP Group’s mission, continued growth and strategic expansion.
Bob Craig, an original equity investor of ZP Group, founded Centerman Capital in 2012 with a commitment to provide early stage strategy and private equity to exceptional founder-led companies. Previously, Bob was the CFO/VP of Finance at Food Should Taste Good and was a co-founder and CFO of Delivered Dish restaurant delivery service. With over a decade of finance and operational experience building small businesses, Bob Craig will provide invaluable guidance for the ZP Group leadership team.

Larry Pfeiffer, throughout his influential 32-year career, has held senior leadership positions at the White House, Central Intelligence Agency, Office of the Director of National Intelligence and National Security Agency, including a decade as a senior executive making and influencing decisions at the highest level. As a highly respected and recognized sector expert, Larry will enable ZP Group to accelerate growth and continue to serve their customers in the US Federal Government and Intelligence Community.

In addition to the new members on the Board of Directors, David Leach, a Principal and Head of Private Equity at The Chertoff Group, will serve ZP Group as a Board Advisor.

“Our new board members’ extensive experience in strategy, growth businesses, information security and government sectors will strengthen ZP Group’s ability to scale and increase impact in our core markets. We appreciate their commitment to being active participants in the value creation process by contributing their expertise and advice,” said Justin Jordan, founder and CEO of ZP Group.

Since 2011, ZP Group has historically delivered exceptional organic growth in its core markets and has strategically expanded its services, capabilities and geographic reach. In March 2018, ZP Group secured Series C funding to support the strategic expansion and organic growth strategy in its core markets, which include U.S. government cyber operations, professional staffing solutions for commercial customers, cyber incident response services and digital forensic investigations.

Chertoff Capital acted as the exclusive financial advisor to ZP Group. In addition, an affiliate of The Chertoff Group made a significant equity investment in the Series C financing to help support ZP Group’s growth strategy.
