About Brandon Flanagan
President & Chief Executive Officer
Brandon co-founded In Force Technology (“IFT”) in 2017 and under his leadership and strategic planning, quickly grew it to one of the most respected and sought-after law enforcement enterprise software developers and providers. Through Brandon’s vision, IFT has developed a proprietary and highly sophisticated real-time threat notification software for law enforcement, school districts and other at-risk organizations. The company’s mission is simple, to save lives during an active shooting event because he understands that time equals lives. Brandon has quickly become the “go-to” with respect to law enforcement and school safety officials that require imminent security measures, and he is recognized by top government elected and appointed officials, and law enforcement executives as a subject matter expert and the consummate professional.
Brandon is a mission-critical executive who demands results. Prior to co-founding IFT, Brandon grew a national public safety technology company from start-up phase to publicly traded on the NASDAQ exchange, which achieved a market cap of $92 Million.
Brandon’s passion for school safety and children runs deep as he served on the Board of Directors for Protect Mass Children, a non-profit advocacy group dedicated to supporting legislative initiatives that protect children against child predators. In 2015, Governor Charlie Baker (MA) appointed Brandon to the Commission on Medico-legal Investigations. The Commission adopts rules and regulations for the Commonwealth’s Office of the Chief Medical Examiner and establishes qualifications for appointment of medical examiners, pathologists and other professionals. Additionally, Brandon is involved in his church and remains an active member of the Foster Care Ministry.
Prior to college, Brandon was a Reebok high school All-American and a highly recruited division 1 (FBS) scholarship football player. Brandon signed his letter of intent with the University at Buffalo where he earned his varsity letter during his redshirt freshman season before transferring home to play for the Minutemen of UMass. As a senior at UMass, Brandon received the team’s award as the top defensive player. Brandon is married with four children and remains active in his community.
