Jay Cohen, President & CEO of Signature Consultants, commented… “After initial discussions with management and overwhelming interest by several potential buyers, Signature agreed to explore a potential sale with the help of an investment bank that specializes in the federal contracting market and the intelligence community space.”

Dr. Cohen continued, “GLOBAL DEFENSE TECHNOLOGY & SYSTEMS, INC. (GTEC) is a strategic and natural fit for Signature Government Solutions as it shares the same passion and commitment to the critical IT, cyber security and intelligence analysis needs of our intelligence community clients. We are excited about the future opportunities this provides both Signature Government Solutions and Signature Consultants clients, consultants and staff.”

“I am very proud of our team – of their hard work and dedication in building a great government practice” said Cohen. “I am particularly excited that the model we established when we founded our company will bear fruit for those who helped build this unit. Accordingly, these individuals will directly benefit as partners upon sale.  Looking forward, we will continue to leverage this model within Signature Consultants as it has been a key success factor and has helped achieve record growth for our company for the past 14 years.”
