Mr. Robertson, with his project and program management acumen, has served in several federal agencies including the U.S. International Development Finance Corporation (DFC), DHS FEMA, General Services Administration (GSA), Food and Drug Administration (FDA), National Institutes of Health (NIH), and Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI). 

At FEMA, Mr. Robertson’s accomplishments as a senior program manager for the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP), Pivot, includes supporting multiple agency responses by leading the IT modernization program. A proponent of Agile philosophy, his guiding principles of full transparency, and a “no-secrets” approach has resulted in breaking down communication barriers among disparate parties, leading to excellence in program management. As a program manager for one the five major agile programs in DHS for IT modernization, his approach successfully reduced programmatic costs by 10 percent over the full Life Cycle Cost Estimate (LCCE), while staying ahead of schedule for the ADE-3 gate. Pivot won Acquisition Program of the year for DHS in 2020, and Robertson was awarded the DHS Acquisition Program Manager of the year for 2019.

During his recent tenure as the Division Director at the DFC, Courtney led multiple branches under the Office of Information Technology with focus on the Enterprise Program Management Division (EPMD), which supported PMO activities for a wide range of projects. Courtney’s successful advisory role and implementation of best practices in federal acquisition, coupled with his high performing Agile Program Management expertise, will provide Niyam an unparalleled advantage in the industry. 

I’m looking forward to the opportunity to work with Courtney again,” said Suman Biswas, Founder and CEO, Niyam. “I believe his addition to Niyam will put us on an upward growth trajectory for years to come and be a valued partner of FEMA.
