Jonathan Trimble


Mr. Trimble recently retired from the FBI as the Chief of Technology Innovation within the Information Management Division.  Mr. Trimble served within the FBI for more than 24 years where he managed large-scale technical projects, identified best practices, and developed organizational initiatives for “leap ahead” gains for the agency. While at IMD, some of his project successes include developing an analytical platform to accelerate investigations and increase understanding of disparate intelligence sources, as well as the on-time and on-budget completion of the FBI’s $220 million Central Records Complex, which integrated robotics and artificial intelligence to increase agency’s ability to manage its vast information holdings.  He led the integration effort for a case management system to bring FOIPA document retrieval and dissemination into the next generation.

With a passion for both complex investigations and technology innovation, Jonathan has served as the Chair of the Virginia Area Maritime Security Council Cyber Subcommittee, as the Government Vice Chair on ACT-IAC’s Cyber Community of Interest and served as a member of the FBI Director’s Initiative for Digital Exhaust and the CIO Council’s Innovation Committee.  His knowledge of FBI Operational programs and Information management challenges, makes him an ideal subject matter expert to assist corporations trying to work in the government sector.

Jonathan is a graduate of the United States Coast Guard Academy where he received a Bachelor of Science in Naval Architecture and Marine Engineering. He subsequently earned a Master of Science in Strategic Intelligence from the National Intelligence University, as well as a Master of Science in Systems Architecture and Engineering from the University of Southern California.  In 2018, Jonathan completed the Chief Information Security Officer program at Carnegie Mellon University.
