Clarity Innovations, Chameleon Consulting merge

On June 10, Clarity Innovations, a national security software, data and cyber engineering platform providing complex mission system outcomes, and Chameleon Consulting Group (CCG), a provider of full spectrum cyber operations solutions and services, announced they have merged to create a vanguard of next generation systems and cyberspace products and services to the U.S. Department of Defense and Intelligence Community. Clarity is a portfolio company of Capitol Meridian Partners (CMP), a Washington, DC-based firm that invests in companies at the nexus of government and commercial markets. Equity for the transaction came from Capitol Meridian Fund I, L.P. and its affiliates, with substantial participation from members of both management teams. Terms of the transaction, which closed on June 3, 2024, were not disclosed.

Wes Daniels, co-founder and CEO of Clarity, said, “Chameleon is a best-in-class company whose culture and mission-first ethics align perfectly with our own. The fit felt very natural, and I am excited to round out our customer and capability sets. Chameleon’s impact and reputation in the cyberspace and information operations domains are unparalleled. Their expertise and offerings complement, expand, and enhance our collective impact. We will retain all staff and believe the combined platform will create new growth opportunities for the next generation of leaders. We are taking special care to ensure a smooth transition for all customers and employees.”

Chameleon’s co-founders, Tim Berzins and Byron Williams, said, “Our alignment with Team Clarity is a force multiplier for our team, our customers, and mission partners. CCG and Clarity are relentlessly focused on taking care of our people, helping our customers within the National Security sector accomplish their mission, and establishing ourselves as vanguards within our operational and mission focus areas. Our shared core values will ensure we fulfill commitments to our customers and colleagues. Together we will accomplish our vision and mission faster than on our own.”

Mike Gozycki, partner at Capitol Meridian Partners, said, “We believe combining Clarity and Chameleon, two founder-led businesses that share a common mission and culture, is the best answer for all customers and employees. Together, we can build the premier national security platform that leaves an indelible and lasting impact on our government mission partners and U.S. national security. Clarity and Chameleon’s like-minded, innovative, and agile cultures will accelerate our ability to operationalize high-impact capabilities.”

The combined business will keep the Clarity name and will retain all employees. Daniels will continue as CEO, and Berzins and Williams will remain senior executives in the go-forward organization.
