STERLING, Va., Jan 24, 2012 (BUSINESS WIRE) — Fixmo Inc., the mobile risk management (MRM) company, today announced its new Board of Advisors. Charter members include Mr. Bob Gourley, CTO at Crucial Point LLC; Mr. Wilson “Bill” Livingood, a 33-year veteran of the United States Secret Service and Sergeant at Arms (Ret.) of the United States House of Representatives for the 104th Congress; and Rear Admiral Arthur Lawrence, Assistant Surgeon General (Ret.) who last served in his over 37 year career as Director, Office of Security and Strategic Information, U.S. Department of Health and Human Services and previously served as the Deputy Assistant Secretary for Health Operations.
