A Kinder, Gentler Approach to Professional Services

Former Oracle Executive enters the Federal IT arena as President and CEO of VA Associates, LLC.

Virginia Callahan, former Senior Practice Director of Oracle Corporation’s Federal Civilian Consulting Practice has traded her 22 years of corporate management for entrepreneurship. She is no stranger to the information technology community and no stranger to the federal sector where she has built her career and developed a passion for creating satisfied clients through innovative solutions. She is fondly referred to by employees and clients as the “Kinder, Gentler, Professional Services."

Virginia Callahan formed VA Associates, LLC out of a desire to provide Oracle Professional Services and Enterprise Architecture Solutions through long term partnerships with clients and prime contractors. The kinder, Gentler title was coined through the years, due to Ms Callahan’s focus on creating satisfied clients through satisfied employees, a concept that Ms. Callahan has clearly emphasized at VA Associates. This CEO is comfortable in a meeting on Capital Hill, discussing technology solutions with a local small business owner, or mentoring businesses entering the federal sector. She considers each business problem as critical and important. She’s a people person who enjoys using technology to enable governments and businesses to achieve their goals and objectives.

It appears that others are embracing this refreshing approach to business. Since formally opening the doors of VA Associates in July 2004, Ms Callahan has closed a multi-year contract and formed alliances with several prime contractors as a subcontractor. She and her staff show no signs of being weary. Instead, they are busy building the pipeline to create more satisfied clients and partners. Their conversations are consumed with discussions of Database design, JAVA, Oracle 10G, Forms, Reports, Financial Applications, and new ideas for application development. While the team talks technology they never loose focus of the customer objectives. It's likely that the IT industry will see the effects of the “Kinder, Gentler Approach” for many years to come through the skilled team at VA Associates, LLC.
