Paul Milo, Jr.
Mr. Milo, President of Hyperion, Inc. along with Mr. George J. Tyson, co-founded Hyperion in 1991. Mr. Milo and Mr. Tyson have over 75 years of combined professional experience in the fields of IT Systems Integration, Industrial Engineering, Economic Analysis, Systems Analysis, and Operations Research.
In the late 1970’s, Mr. Milo joined a Northern Virginia consulting firm as a Systems Analyst supporting the US Navy. As an outgrowth of this work, Mr. Milo became involved in providing support to DoD with the adoption of automation including the integration of micro-computers (PCs), local area networking and the establishment of voice/video and data networks.
Hyperion’s founding in 1991 coincided with the beginnings of the Internet era and the expansion and proliferation of LANs, WANs and the World-Wide Web. Under the guidance of its founders, Hyperion quickly grew into a provider of communications network infrastructure while providing support to the DoD world-wide. As president of the company, Mr. Milo played an important role in Hyperion’s growth and development. He has been responsible for guidance that allowed Hyperion to evolve into a multi-dimensional company that is providing engineering and technical services, designing, acquiring, integrating, delivering, installing, operating and maintaining automated systems for Government and industry. In large part because of his efforts, Hyperion has developed the capability to deploy technical teams to consult, survey, install, maintain and/or operate automated information systems throughout the Continental US and Hawaii; and in Korea, Japan, Great Britain, France, Belgium, The Netherlands, Germany, Italy, Romania, Greece, Turkey, Crete, Kuwait, Afghanistan and Iraq.
Mr. Milo holds a BS in Economics and an MA in Economics from George Mason University in Fairfax, VA. When he is not at the helm of Hyperion, he is at the helm of his sailboat where he is often competing in buoy and off-shore racing.
George Tyson is a native of Massachusetts who holds a BA in Economics from Boston College and an MBA from Harvard University. He served on active duty in the U.S. Navy for 14 years in a variety of afloat, ashore, and overseas logistics management assignments and for 11 years in the Naval Reserve during which time he commanded two naval reserve units and retired with the rank of Captain. He is a graduate of the U.S. Naval War College and taught Systems Analysis while on the faculty of the war college. Upon leaving the active duty navy, he joined American Management Systems, a leading systems development firm, and was rapidly promoted to Vice President and to a division general manager position leading teams of Information Technology (IT) professionals in developing and deploying innovative IT applications.
Mr. Tyson also has been active in his community. When elected to the board of directors of the Alexandria Country Day School and appointed chairman of its finance committee, he learned that the school was technically insolvent but within two years, he converted a $100,000 annual deficit to a $100,000 surplus. That positioned the school to offer a $2,000,000 bond issue to be used for purchase of a permanent school building and campus, which Mr. Tyson, by then Chairman of the Board of Directors, personally managed working with a Richmond-based investment banker. Currently, Mr. Tyson is very active in Rotary, the world’s oldest and largest volunteer service organization, having served as president of his Rotary club, and currently, as manager of Rotary member training activities supporting over 5,000 members in four mid-Atlantic states.
