TrustedQA, Inc. (TQA), a steadily growing software engineering solutions and professional services firm founded in 1988, announced on Monday, June 21st, that Perry Townsend has joined the TQA Senior Leadership team as Chief Growth Officer (CGO) of Federal Business. The CGO is a newly created position that will focus on revenue generation and business development efforts within Federal/DoD markets. Perry will play a critical role in federal business innovation and strategy, serve as a key thought partner to lead/mentor/train our outstanding team of growth professionals, and play an essential role on the Executive Leadership Team.
In a statement from Neil Moyer, President & CEO, “Our strategy at the start of 2019 was to build up our full-time engineering staff, particularly those whom we could align with long-term programs. The goal in doing so was to increase our corporate capabilities, provide growth opportunities for our employees, and expand our team of highly competent technical staff in pursuit of solving challenges for our customers. We are humbled to state that we have successfully executed this strategy, as proven by our over 160% organic increase in full-time software engineering staff.
Perry has been a customer and partner of ours since 2004. We could not think of a more qualified individual to lead our organization’s continued growth. This growth represents greater opportunities for our employees to innovate and grow within their careers while simultaneously increasing our capabilities to deliver modernized software solutions to our warfighters and customers. It is an honor to have Perry join our team. We are confident that with his help, TQA can scale to new heights.”
Perry most recently served as Strategic Capture Manager for CACI. He was responsible for developing and executing the overall business capture strategy for new and re-compete business valued at $75M or higher. During his last two years in this role, Perry successfully led the capture of over $500M in valued contracts within the US Air Force and US Army. Perry’s unique experience and education align him perfectly as a “triple threat” individual that TQA was seeking in the new CGO leadership role. These are individuals who can win, deliver, and grow the work. Perry’s background includes six years serving the United States Marine Corps as a Communications Officer, a Bachelor’s degree from the United States Naval Academy, Master’s degrees in Computer Information Systems and Business Administration, five years of Systems Engineering in DoD Civil Service, and the last seventeen years in business development, capture and management of large-scale mission-critical DoD systems.
Perry commented, “I am excited to join TrustedQA and help grow the company into a Small Business prime contractor of choice for customers and employees. TrustedQA’s culture and capabilities make this an excellent opportunity to support and drive continued growth. I am grateful to be part of this trustworthy, highly capable, and customer-focused company.”
“Concur continuously uses TrustedQA to source ‘Quality’ candidates. Over the years we’ve been impressed at the personal attention TQA offers us; in particular to understand our business challenges so that only the top talent that meets our needs is sourced.”
“TQA is the top performing vendor on my program in terms of responsiveness, quality, attention to detail and following process. We intend to include them on our upcoming recompete of the current contract based on their sustained superior performance.”
“Their approach is really great as they focus on those hybrid outside the box critical thinker testers who can perform all types of testing, hence the word “hybrid” where testers also have a situational approach to testing, not just “checkers” but overall contributors to quality.”
“TrustedQA has consistently provided our clinical trials support division with excellent technical staff over the years. They are one of our trusted partners.”
“TQA does a great job with communicating and they are very quick to complete tasks in compliance with all technical requirements identified in the statement of work."
“[TrustedQA’s] staff is well trained and capable of addressing customer requirements. Northrop Grumman and the customer are satisfied with [TrustedQA’s] performance.”
“The TQA technical team has provided support as expected. Their employees are qualified, perform productive work quickly, and have shown a wealth of knowledge and experience. Many come with skills that are difficult to find/fill. We have been extremely happy with the candidates that have come from TrustedQA.”
“TrustedQA continues providing excellent testing resources who quickly exceed expectations in the GCCS-J Agile software development and test environment. Would recommend them to a team looking to augment staff with consistently high quality software testing support staff.”
“TQA is truly our “go-to” vendor for immediate staffing needs. We know when we reach out to them, they are able to provide highly qualified staff that can meet both our short and long term program needs. They have been supporting our current contract for over 9 years and have always provided great support.”
TrustedQA received superior marks for Service Level Performance and Financial Health on their Annual Supplier Assessment Report from Northrop Grumman Defense Systems leadership for work performed on the GCCS-J Sustainment and Maintenance program (January 2021).
"TrustedQA remains an integral part of the program's long-standing record of delivering innovative solutions and quality products to the customer. As a mainstay on the program, their test and software engineers have provided critical support, especially as the program reaches major milestones in replacing legacy functionality within the GCCS-J suite of products. Through their tireless effort and tenacious resolve, TrustedQA engineers have afforded Northrop Grumman every opportunity to contend in what has become a highly competitive market."
