Amanda Axsom has been named Halfaker and Associates’ chief development officer, tasked with strategic capture and solution and intellectual property development to support corporate growth.
Axsom most recently was the company’s executive vice president of business development. She built out the solution and proposal development department and led capture on a majority of bids, including the company’s largest wins over the past three years, contributing to over $1 billion in contract awards.
She also designed the company’s BD management framework, which consists of dynamic, repeatable processes to increase efficiency and bid quality and enable rapid scaling.
Additionally, Axsom is an expert in strategic capture, financial management, program and quality management, team design and process improvement.
Prior to joining Halfaker, Axsom worked as a director at Phase One Consulting Group, where she built the company’s federal health portfolio and oversaw strategy, capture and business development across the company’s health care sector.
Axsom’s contributions will help position Halfaker for continued growth and scalability, said Dawn Halfaker, the company’s president and CEO.
“Her leadership in this expanded role will drive Halfaker’s ability to continue to deliver on our mission to improve the health, security and wellbeing of Americans,” Halfaker said.
Axsom said she’s fortunate to work with a high-performing department of capture, solution, proposal and creative services experts.
“I look forward to this next step in collectively working to design and propose increasingly high quality, best-fit solutions to the government’s toughest challenges,” she said.
