On January 14, Reston, VA-based 1901 Group announced that industry veteran George Batsakis joined the company as executive vice president and chief strategy officer. In this new role, Batsakis will lead the company’s overall strategy planning and development while lending his expertise in executive management, operations, new business development, emerging technology, and technology partnerships to support the company’s continued expansion in the public sector market.

“Over the last several years, we have worked to establish the premiere managed services business in public sector. We leverage our multi-tenant, FedRAMP authorized technology platform coupled with deep knowledge of x-as-a-service pricing models, all delivered from our Enterprise Operations IT Center in Blacksburg, Virginia to increase IT performance at a lower cost point. With CAGR of close to 30% over the last six years, we needed to expand our leadership team and systematically infuse additional technologies into our platform, while adding new capabilities and processes to maintain – or exceed – our past growth rates. George’s skill set in leading technology and innovation-oriented businesses coupled with his keen understanding of market trends are an ideal match for the company. We are excited to have George on the 1901 Group team,” said Sonu Singh, CEO of 1901 Group.

That same commitment to innovation and differentiated services provide the ideal platform for continued growth, market leadership, and building the workforce of the future for cloud-delivered capabilities.”

Batsakis holds a master’s degree in business from John’s Hopkins University and a bachelor’s degree in political science and government from Hillsdale College.
