About Us

About Us

We are Tomahawk

We thrive on teamwork. We’re united in a shared vision of a safer world and safer communities. As veterans and former special operations members, we formed this company in 2014 to share what we’ve learned with you.

We are dedicated to working in partnership with our clients.

A committed partner

Given the nature of our business, we never leave our clients high and dry. Clients frequently call to check in, get our opinion, and ask for specialized help in response to an event – like a data breach or violent incident – at their organization. Sometimes clients even call us during an emergency. We always pick up the phone for our partners.

What we do

We work with corporate entities, law enforcement, and the private sector to train employees and security staff, and to improve emergency response and readiness. We have a wide range of services we customize to suit the unique needs of our clients.

Our Origin Story

Tomahawk’s founders, Keith “Wally” Walawender and Mike Biller, first met in 2007 while serving on the same team at Naval Special Warfare Development Group (NSWDG). They worked side-by-side for the next eight years, building a deep bond of friendship and camaraderie as they navigated deployments, not only in Iraq and Afghanistan, but throughout the world. In 2014, Wally medically retired after suffering serious injuries from a helicopter crash. Biller’s injuries forced him to retire shortly after, in 2015. As they discussed their future, Mike and Wally deliberated about how to utilize their skills and experience in a way that would continue their service to their country and their communities. Tomahawk Strategic Solutions was born shortly thereafter. Wally and Biller built Tomahawk on their shared values and principles, with the goal of creating a more secure future, one community and organization at a time. They chose the name Tomahawk to pay tribute to the command they served in, and the colors of the feathers honor the other men and women who dedicated—and sometimes sacrificed—their lives to their country in service to NSWDG.
