EverWatch acquires BrainTrust
Reston, VA-based EverWatch, a provider of advanced solutions in intelligence, defense, and deployed mission support to our country’s most critical national security agencies, has acquired BrainTrust, a provider of innovative technology solutions to the intelligence and defense communities. EverWatch will merge BrainTrust with its existing business unit in Columbia, MD. The BrainTrust founders and senior management team will join the newly merged entity and help lead EverWatch’s continued growth. EverWatch is backed by Enlightenment Capital.
“The addition of BrainTrust enables EverWatch to continue to aggressively pursue our strategy of combining innovative technical capabilities with the infrastructure and reach of a mid‐tier player,” said Jason Rigoli, Partner at Enlightenment Capital and Chairman of EverWatch. “Bob Kiffney and his team are true professionals who have built an outstanding business that has a proven ability to deliver to its national security customers, and they are a perfect addition to the EverWatch family.”
“We are thrilled to add one of the leading software development companies in the intelligence arena to EverWatch,” said John Hillen, chief executive officer of EverWatch. “In this current environment of either a few very large companies or thousands of small companies, our government customers are looking for fully capable mid‐sized prime contractors to help them with their most critical missions. The partnership with BrainTrust and its talented team positions EverWatch with over 500 dedicated national security professionals, committed to delivering technology solutions across the defense and intelligence sector.”
“The combination of BrainTrust with our ACES business unit in Columbia, Maryland gives us a highly enhanced set of technical capabilities, mission expertise, and contract presence for our intelligence community customers,” said EverWatch’s Chief Growth Officer Fred Funk. “We aim to use that combination to bid on and win mission critical work with unique technology solutions in much the same way we did with our recent win providing a unique C4ISR solution for the US Navy.”
“We are really excited to join the team at EverWatch and to continue the hard work of supporting our clients’ most important missions,” said Robert Kiffney, founder & CEO of BrainTrust. “The cultures of these two companies are a great fit, and our whole management team is thrilled to be part of taking EverWatch to the next level.”
