G2X TAKE: On the heels of acquiring the Health IT Division of a VA T4NG Prime and adding a Prime role on the $1B VA IHT IDIQ, this very fast-growing SDVOSB Healthcare services and IT consultancy has recruited this industry leader whose rapid career progression up to one of the youngest Partner/SVPs at Booz Allen Hamilton was driven by his ability to deliver sales and market growth above plan, his ability to lead large and complex client engagements, and his understanding of how to operate across client landscapes.  

Take Bytes 

  • Just this past summer Sierra7 completed an asset purchase agreement with HMS Technologies, Inc. (HMS) of Martinsburg, WV. Included in the purchase were the VA T4NG IDIQ, GSA VETS 2, NIH CIO-SP3 and NASA SEWP GWACs, and multiple active task orders. More here. 
  • In 2020 alone, Sierra7, has amassed a growing set of expertise and new contract and BPA wins in support of Veterans Affairs, to include a pair of VA T4NG task wins to support Light Electronic Action Framework (LEAF) and Veterans Benefits Management System SQA support services; and providing continued support on efforts such as Medical Coding Services activities, and in support of the Community Care Network (CCN) initiative. They were also named one of the small businesses recently awarded a Prime spot on the $1B VHA Integrated Healthcare Transformation (IHT) acquisition which is intended to provide a vehicle for a wide range of general management and business services and solutions in the broad health care environment. We should note that Sierra7 also serves as a Prime contractor for the $25B VA Veteran Enterprise Contracting for Transformation and Operations Readiness (VECTOR) contract, and is one of only 3 awardees who initially received 4 Service Group areas.  
  • Led by CEO, Rafael Fagundo, Sierra7 has made a number of executive level hires this year to bolster their position, to include recruiting former VA Enterprise and Systems Security lead Steve Gosewehr as a new VP; adding well-known industry leaders John Peterson and Frank Rendon to serve as COO and CFO respectively; and adding Darrell Heinrichs as VP of Business Development. 
  • Sierra7 was recently named to the updated list of NXT UP firms poised to make big waves in the Federal sector in 2020 and for years to come.
