Being president of a company that is known for its integrity, focus, and quality is something that I am extremely proud of.
Bethesda, MD (PRWEB) May 08, 2012
Catapult Technology, Ltd., a leading contracting firm providing Information Technology (IT) services to the federal government, announces the retirement of its president, Barry Kane.
Kane joined Catapult in 2006 to manage the company’s day-to-day operations. During his tenure as President, Catapult saw revenue increase from $49 million in 2006 to $146 million in 2011; graduated from the 8(a) Small Business Program to become a mid-tier firm; and marked its 15th year in business in 2011.
As President, Kane focused on strategic expansion and capitalization on significant growth opportunities. He led through unprecedented uncertainty within the federal marketplace during his five plus years with the company, including threats of government shutdown and budget debates. Throughout these events, Kane maintained a steadfast posture and kept the company on track, said Randy J. Slager, CEO, Chairman, and founder of Catapult.
“We knew Barry’s track record of acquiring new work, expanding existing contracts, building and running an efficient organization and exceeding revenue and profit estimates” when he was hired in 2006, said Slager. (Slager founded the company in 1996.)
Kane stated, “When I was approached by Randy, I knew that Catapult was a company in transition. My goal and focus when I came on board was to run an efficient organization, and keep the management team facing forward to keep up the momentum.
“As I have said each year over the last five years, being president of a company that is known for its integrity, focus, and quality is something that I am extremely proud of. I will never forget the experience, and I consider working at Catapult a crowning achievement over the course of my career.”
Kane brought more than 35 years of experience in the public and private sectors at small- to mid-level businesses to his role as President of Catapult. Prior to joining Catapult, he was senior vice president at CACI and executive vice president and chief operating officer of AlphaInsight, where he was responsible for all aspects of operations, business development, and proposal development for the company. As executive vice president at SIGNAL Corporation and vice president at Synetics Corporation, Kane acquired and managed government contracts in excess of $120 million.
He continued his federal IT career in the private sector following a 20-year Coast Guard career culminating as the Telecommunications Division Chief in Coast Guard Headquarters. His Coast Guard service included duty at the United States Coast Guard Academy, Seventh District/Miami, and Volpe National Transportation Systems Center. His first assignment was aboard the Coast Guard Cutter Mendota performing patrols off the coast of Vietnam.
