CTS acquires Quantitative Analytics
In its second strategic acquisition, Reston VA-based consulting firm Counter Threat Solutions (CTS) has purchased Quantitative Analytics, LLC of Stafford, VA, CTS announced August 5. The financial details of the acquisition were not disclosed.
Established in 2011, Quantitative Analytics provides program management, data analytics, logistics and air operations, and financial management services to military, government, and commercial customers. The merger brings added expertise and personnel to expand CTS’ service offerings and diversify its client base.
“The talent, experience, and commonality in our client base makes this merger a logical combination of our two firms,” explained Theresa Keith, CEO of Counter Threat Solutions. “Quantitative Analytics complements our existing management consulting services and broadens our depth in data visualization and predictive analytics and expands our capabilities in Logistics Management and Aviation Operations (L&AO), particularly within the Intelligence and Defense communities.”
Joining CTS in key operational roles are Quantitative Analytics president and CEO Robert Darling. Darling, founder of the firm, is a 20-plus year veteran of the United States Marine Corps. He piloted attack helicopters in Desert Shield and Desert Storm; was selected to fly as a presidential pilot with Marine Helicopter Squadron One (HMX-1), worked as an airlift operations officer for the White House Military Office; and served as the Department of the Navy Flying Hour Program manager at the Pentagon. A sought-after speaker on crisis leadership, Darling is the author of “24 Hours Inside the President’s Bunker, 9/11/01: The White House,” and the owner of Turning Point Crisis Management-USA, a crisis leadership training and technology firm located in Stafford, VA.
“Bob and I share a heritage of military service and commitment to national defense, and we have a mutual respect and admiration for what each other has accomplished as entrepreneurs and as Service Disabled Veteran Owned Small Businesses (SDVOSB),” said Keith.
“Our shared ability to bring creative solutions and professional resources to meet our clients’ most complex challenges will allow our legacy to live on in CTS,” added Darling. “I am excited for our future as we join forces with CTS.”
