Sid Fuchs, president and CEO, MacAulay-Brown, Inc.
In 2018, Sid Fuchs and his leadership team enabled MacAulay-Brown, Inc., known as MacB, to realize a highly successful exit when MacB was acquired by Veritas Capital and merged with Alion Science and Technology. CEO of MacB since 2011 and under very challenging market conditions, Fuchs led the debt-free transformation of MacB from a once predominantly U.S. Air Force SETA contractor to a double-digit growth NextGen engineering solutions, technology, and services company primarily serving defense, intelligence and special forces customers.
This is the second turnaround and exit within the past eight years, with Fuchs’ first being OAO Technology Solutions, a portfolio company of private equity firm John F. Lehman and Partners, which was acquired by Platinum Equity in 2010. Prior to OAOT, Fuchs was the CEO of TASC and led the company to over $1 billion in revenue in 2006.
As a growth-focused CEO and team builder with two successful exits under his belt, expect him to not shy away from making it a trifecta. When not building successful companies, Fuchs continues to do public speaking on leadership and networking theories and techniques highlighted in his 2012 book, “Get Off the Bench.”
