SDVOSB founded by former VA T4 Prime CEO adds to team

Update: October 9, 2018

G2X TAKE: Fresh off seeing this startup, founded by an entrepreneur who led the charge for one of the most successful Federal Health IT firms in the last decade, recruit Melissa Chapman to serve as their new President, SDVOSB 9th Way Solutions has added two more pieces to the puzzle.  

Will Williams is the new COO for 9th Way, and will provide operational leadership across the service areas of Systems and Program Management, Enterprise/Health IT Services, Cyber and Information Security. 

In addition, Nancy Van Balen will bring more than 30 years of experience directing organizations in all phases of business development, capture management, and proposal management, to her new role as a consultant supporting growth for 9th Way Solutions

We will not be tracking every hire this new firm makes here, but we do share these as this set of investments clearly positions this startup a bit higher on the radar as both a potential partner and competitor.
