Executive Mosaic’s weekly round-up of news is a can’t-miss, digestible snapshot of the GovCon industry covering the biggest executive moves, mergers & acquisitions and contracts straight from the pen of one of GovCon’s most respected facilitators and sources of breaking news, Jim Garrettson.
This week, the newsletter contained M&A activity at ManTech, Veritas and Avaya Government Solutions as well as an important executive move at Leidos.
John Jumper will retire from his Leidos CEO role after two years at the helm.
The former Air Force chief of staff helped lead the split of SAIC into two separate companies that are now known as Leidos and SAIC.
ManTech has purchased Allied Technology Group.
Allied also holds positions on two DHS contract vehicles that are worth up to $33 billion combined for all awardees.
“This acquisition is consistent with ManTech’s long-term strategy to extend our presence in growth markets. DHS represents a large and fast growing budget,” said George Pedersen, ManTech chairman and CEO.
Veritas Capital has acquired high-frequency microwave microelectronics company Anaren for $383 million which equals $28 per share.
Also, Camber Corp. is to buy Avaya Government Solutions’ IT professional services consulting group for $100 million.
The newsletter provides a glimpse into the vast amounts of excellent and insightful coverage Executive Mosaic introduces to executives through its media portfolio.
