G2X TAKE: Only a few months removed from the huge announcement that they have acquired VA T4NG Prime, Kforce Government Solutions, ManTech adds Randy Tharp, a high profile industry leader who brings a wide range of experiences with Government, with industry, and serving as an evangelist for improving access, Healthcare, and benefits for our Veterans, as he takes on a new role driving company Operations in support of Veterans Affairs.
In announcing the move, Tharp noted: “I’m excited to announce that I’ve joined the exceptional ManTech team as Vice President of VA Programs. I’m honored to continue to serve our Veterans in this new role, and look forward to working with our VA and Industry partners to deliver on our promise to care for those who shall have borne the battle.”
Prior roles include:
- Account Management Lead – Leidos
- Enterprise Portfolio Manager – Spectrum Health
- Agency Performance & Management Oversight – Executive Office of The President
- Senior Non-Commissioned Officer in Charge of the Walter Reed Warrior Games program – US Army
- In addition to his many professional accomplishments, Randy may be best known for his role as President, CEO, and Co-Founder of VETSports, a National organization for Veterans enhancing physical, mental, and emotional health through sports, physical fitness, and community involvement.
- In addition to acquiring a Prime position on the important $22.3B T4NG IDIQ with the acquisition of Kforce Government Solutions (KGS), ManTech also added significant experience supporting VA on key Infrastructure Operations initiatives, ESB Enterprise Messaging and Data Transformation, extensive experience in support of the VA Financial Services center, and as a Prime on the $85M Business Case Analysis Technical Support (BCATS) effort.
- With the VA TAC seeming to grow more comfortable every day with both how and what types of actions can be left full and open in this new post-Kingdomware world, this acquisition and hire are well-timed and positions ManTech to be a major player at VA using the T4NG IDIQ and elsewhere.
