Partner & National Security Sector Leader, Guidehouse
This past year, Guidehouse has focused on corporate growth initiatives that all revolve around its commitment to help clients meet their most important challenges with innovative, mission-centric solutions.
“While we have always had a collaborative culture, we are building more channels and capabilities across our firm to share scalable solutions,” said John Saad, national security sector leader at Guidehouse
Guidehouse’s investment in its capabilities around growth are significantly greater than ever before, and its success has allowed Saad and his team to invest strategically. As an example, the recent acquisition of Dovel Technologies enabled Guidehouse to deliver end-to-end solutions for clients.
For many of the national security clients Saad works with, complementing management consulting with this strong technology capability will greatly benefit their missions.
“John is always committed to excellence,” said Scott McIntyre, CEO of Guidehouse. “He’s got a tremendous command of this domain, and the professional team he built at Guidehouse is a testament to his strong leadership and vision. John is a capable, accomplished leader who delivers results. With integrity and humility, he is constantly seeking to find new, creative ways to deliver increased value to his clients.”
In 2022, there will be quite a bit of continued transformation and growth. Saad and his team are seeing a huge demand for the type of services Guidehouse offers, the combined management and technology capabilities and continued growth in the national security space. Talented individuals and access to key contract vehicles will allow Guidehouse to meet clients where they are and bring them that end-to-end capability it delivers.
This year, Saad is heavily focused on optimizing his team, Guidehouse’s strong management and technology consulting capabilities and its innovative approaches to key mission challenges for the benefit of national security clients and the growth of the firm.
“I believe that to serve our clients with innovation and quality, you need to surround yourself with exceptional individuals that a have passion for the missions we serve, coupled with deep technical expertise needed to impact the mission,” Saad said.
