John Scarcella, Senior Vice President, Enterprise Systems, is the Catapult liaison to Dexisive. “As a veteran-owned business, being a part of the GSA Mentor-Protégé program is an integral part of Catapult’s sourcing plans as we help small businesses with assistance and knowledge across a broad range of business requirements so that they can effectively compete,” said Scarcella. “We are honored to win this important award, as it indicates that we are making the right moves as a mentor assisting a smaller business to grow and succeed in the federal marketplace.”
