Government Contractor Executive Seminar

Join David Kriegman, former COO of SRA International, CEO of Z2B-LLC and author of From Zero to a Billion, along with Dennis Kelly, President and COO of Centauri, as they share their real-life experiences of growing a valuable government contractor business with a strategic exit plan.

Scott Meza, leading M&A Attorney with Greenberg Traurig, will share the benefits and risks associated with common deal types and structures, points in growth when his clients decided to sell and what makes a successful transaction for both the buyer and seller.

Guillaume Laffitte-Smith, Senior Manager in Cherry Bekaert’s Transaction Advisory Services practice, will cover financial performance drivers.

Richard Phillips, Senior Partner with Crossroads Capital, will share his insights on advising mature companies looking to recalibrate as they evolve through divestiture, joint-venture or acquisition.

Announcing Special Guest Bill Weber, former President and CEO of KeyW Corporation!

Bill will be present during the networking sessions to share his 3+ year transformation of KeyW. During this time, he focused on KeyW’s consistent growth and operational discipline – leading up to its sale to Jacobs Engineering (JEC) for an industry-leading multiple and shareholder return in the Spring of 2019.

Reception and Happy Hour will immediately follow this session. This is a great opportunity to talk with the panelists, meet the sponsors and enjoy drinks and hors d’oeuvres!
