On December 21, 2023, Nordic Consulting, a global healthcare technology consulting company, announced a significant addition to its leadership team with the hiring of James Crawford as President of Nordic Federal, a newly formed business line dedicated to US government contracts.
In his new role, Crawford will play a pivotal role in developing and executing a strategy to expand Nordic's federal business. His responsibilities include overseeing the day-to-day operations of the federal team, drawing on his extensive experience in navigating the complexities of government contracts and achieving tangible results.
Prior to joining Nordic, he served as the Executive Vice President of Corporate Development and Administration for AMI Expeditionary Healthcare, specializing in providing medical solutions in challenging environments globally. His professional journey includes roles at PAE (now Amentum), Pro-Sol Associates, and Engility, complemented by over a decade and a half of service in the United States Air Force and a distinguished career in criminal justice.
Jim Costanzo, CEO at Nordic Consulting, highlighted the importance of Crawford's appointment, stating, "There are many complexities when working with the government, and it's important we have a leader who understands how to navigate the rules, regulations, and nuances in this space." The CEO expressed confidence in Crawford's ability to strengthen the company's federal business, emphasizing his expertise in managing multi-year government contracts.
Further, Crawford himself expressed enthusiasm about joining the company, emphasizing the company's mission of leveraging technology to improve healthcare systems and communities.

I'm looking forward to leveraging my skills and Nordic's reputation for continued growth."
Nordic Federal, the newly established business line, will leverage the expertise of S&P Consultants, an affiliated entity acquired by Nordic in 2021. Crawford will collaborate closely with experienced professionals from S&P Consultants, including Zach Johnson, who has been promoted to Chief Strategy Officer for Nordic Federal.
