George Wilson started working with ECS in 2011 and took over as CEO in 2014. His purpose when joining was to build a company driven by exceptional service, highly skilled employees and a culture centered on integrity, leadership and teamwork.
Wilson’s vision helped transform a small, services-oriented business into a large technology-focused provider of delivered solutions. Under his leadership, ECS has experienced organic growth while making tactical acquisitions to build technical depth in cloud services, cybersecurity and artificial intelligence. Revenue has more than doubled twice during his tenure, from just over $100 million in 2010 to over $600 million targeted in 2018.
On Jan. 31, On Assignment, Inc. signed a definitive agreement to acquire ECS Federal, from Roy Kapani, company majority owner and founder, and Lindsay Goldberg, a private investment firm, for $775 million in cash. The transaction is expected to close on or about April 2, 2018.
ECS will become a division of On Assignment and continue to operate under the ECS brand name. Wilson and the current leadership team of ECS Federal will continue to execute the strategy and oversee the day-to-day operations of the business. Wilson and the team are energized by the possibilities of this acquisition.
