Core4ce unveils Innovation Incubator, new execs

On June 27, Arlington, VA-based Core4ce, a federal contractor with expertise in data and cyber operations, announced three leadership appointments. Todd Harbour, company co-founder and managing partner, is taking on the role of chief technology officer to oversee the company’s newly-branded innovation incubator – The Forge. Harbour is joined by new team members Kim Kok, vice president of sales and emerging technology, and Michael Sass, head of data engineering and analytics.

“Within The Forge, we’re working to transform the professional services sector through strategic intellectual property investment,” said Harbour. “The Forge exemplifies the vigor of a blacksmith’s workshop, where we heat, hammer, and harden innovative ideas into market-leading solutions.”

As CTO, Harbour will lead Core4ce’s solution engineering teams to design and develop robust, scalable, and market-leading technology products and services that meet today’s mission needs and drive innovation to support our nation’s security. Previously, Harbour played an instrumental role in launching Grist Mill Exchange, the first initiative to spin out from Core4ce’s innovation incubator. Prior to founding Core4ce, Harbour served as the Chief Data Officer (CDO) for New York State and as a senior federal government official, where he led big data analytic efforts and worked to establish several key data management programs.
