A provider of force modernization and digital transformation solutions, VTG on Jan. 13 announced the acquisition of Intelligent Shift LLC, a provider of innovative technologies and digital solutions to the U.S. intelligence community.
The combination bolsters VTG’s systems, software and digital engineering capabilities, and expands the company’s presence in the national security market.
VTG President and CEO John Hassoun said he was excited to welcome the Intelligent Shift team to VTG.
“This acquisition represents the next chapter in the strategic transformation of VTG,” he added. “Intelligent Shift brings unique technical expertise that positions us to deliver a more differentiated suite of engineering and digital solutions to a customer base that now spans the Defense enterprise and the Intelligence Community.”
Founded in 2017 by Mike DeFede, Alissa Redding and Mike Matthews, Intelligent Shift’s engineers provide subject matter expertise across numerous high-priority national security mission areas.
“Intelligent Shift has always been focused on an industry-best employee culture and a commitment to customer missions,” DeFede said. “In VTG, we’ve found a partner that shares these passions. The combined company will expand our ability to drive smart change for our customers and will create new opportunities for our employees while strengthening our culture.”
Intelligent Shift, which will continue to be led by DeFede, Redding and Matthews, will operate as the IC services component of a new business segment led by recently appointed VTG executive Kirk Herdman.
“We continue to reshape our enterprise and reposition for the future,” said Sunil Ramchand, chief growth officer of VTG. “The acquisition of Intelligent Shift accelerates our strategy, both in terms of game-changing capability growth and customer reach.”
