Privia LLC of Herndon, VA announced on August 21 that James (“Jay”) McConville has joined the company as president and chief executive officer.
McConville has over twenty years’ experience in the federal business sector, and is the former president and CEO of Aeromech Engineering, Inc. (AME) and executive vice president with Chandler/May, Inc., both acquired by Lockheed Martin Corporation in 2012. He has also served in senior business development and operations positions at Lockheed Martin, General Dynamics, and ManTech International. Jay is the Founder of Emerald Collaborative Partners, LLC, a strategy, advocacy and business development consultancy dedicated to helping organizations, like Privia, reach their business and policy objectives.
“Privia provides value to every company wishing to bid and win federal contracts. Proposal processes can be difficult and costly, limiting the competitive range of every federal contractor. As competition has increased, it’s even more important than ever to make sure every part of an RFP response is compliant. Privia’s collaboration and proposal support software, teamed with value-added services, help clients automate, collaborate and deliver quality proposals, and ensures proposal teams can concentrate on winning,” said McConville. “I see an excellent opportunity to grow and build the company’s value by filling this important customer need, and look forward to working with Privia’s employees, customers, and business partners to deliver great results.”
“Jay is an excellent choice to lead Privia,” added Steve Maier, president of Management Concepts and Privia LLC board member. “Jay brings a wealth of experience in the federal contracting space and a deep understanding of the needs of business and proposal development professionals. Privia’s software and service offerings support government contractors as they work to bid and win contracts. Jay’s leadership will help Privia bring tailored and robust solutions to this large market.”
