WASHINGTON--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Buchanan & Edwards Inc., an award-winning and fast-growing technology leader creating transformative solutions for government customers, announced today that Dennis Kelly has joined the company as its new president and CEO. Kelly most recently was CEO of IOMAXIS, a leading cybersecurity firm, and will continue to serve as a member of its board of advisers. Previously, Kelly was president of National Security Solutions for PAE following its 2015 acquisition of A-T Solutions, a global counterterrorism firm, which he led as president and CEO.
“We are excited to have Dennis join us because he is a true leader with an exemplary foundation of values and knowledge in the government contracting space,” said Brian Karlisch, co-founder of Buchanan & Edwards. “Dennis is uniquely suited to lead us into a period of substantial growth and expansion in a manner that enables our team to bring more of its incredible solutions to a broader range of government agencies, which today are facing mission-critical challenges perhaps unlike those encountered at any other time in history.”
As president and CEO, Kelly will support the company by bolstering BE’s business development function and expanding its customer footprint in the national security market.
“Buchanan & Edwards has an amazing history of advancing and maintaining core technology systems and innovations for customers such as the Department of State, the FBI and the U.S. Marine Corps,” said Kelly. “I look forward to working closely with the incredible team here to build on that strong foundation and bring more of BE’s capabilities to serve the broader national security community — a community that is seeking the kind of transformative, efficient and effective technology solutions that BE provides.”
Kelly joins BE as a nearly 30-year veteran of the federal services contracting arena. He led A-T Solutions for eight years, first as president and chief operating officer from 2008 to 2010 and then as president and CEO through 2015. Over this period, Kelly helped grow the company from about $34 million to more than $200 million in revenue. He also received various awards for outstanding leadership, including Most Admired CEO by Washington Business Journal, the GovStar “Star Warfighter” Award by SmartCEO, and Executive of the Year in Aerospace & Defense by American Business Awards.
Earlier in his career, he served as senior vice president of Anteon International Corp., a $1.7 billion information technology and integration services firm serving the government sector, and as president of TechTeam Government Solutions Inc., an $80 million wholly owned subsidiary of TechTeam Global Inc.
Today Kelly is an adjunct professor at George Mason University in the Executive MBA program and serves on the board of directors of the USO of Metropolitan Washington - Baltimore. He is a proud veteran of the U.S. Navy and holds an MBA from the University of Rhode Island.
