VTG Acquires Intelligent Shift, Enhancing Digital Transformation Capabilities and Adding Intelligence Community to Customer Portfolio

Chantilly, Va., Jan. 13, 2021 – VTG, an industry-leading provider of force modernization and digital transformation solutions, is pleased to announce the acquisition of Intelligent Shift LLC, a rapidly growing firm delivering innovative technologies and digital solutions to the U.S. Intelligence Community. The combination bolsters VTG’s systems, software, and digital engineering capabilities, and expands the company’s presence in the national security market.

“I am excited to welcome the Intelligent Shift team to VTG,” said John Hassoun, VTG president and CEO. “This acquisition represents the next chapter in the strategic transformation of VTG. Intelligent Shift brings unique technical expertise that positions us to deliver a more differentiated suite of engineering and digital solutions to a customer base that now spans the Defense enterprise and the Intelligence Community.”

Founded in 2017 by Mike DeFede, Alissa Redding, and Mike Matthews, Intelligent Shift’s highly skilled engineers provide subject matter expertise across numerous high-priority national security mission areas. On behalf of the founders, Mike DeFede said, “Intelligent Shift has always been focused on an industry-best employee culture and a commitment to customer missions. In VTG, we’ve found a partner that shares these passions. The combined company will expand our ability to drive smart change for our customers and will create new opportunities for our employees while strengthening our culture.” Intelligent Shift, which will continue to be led by DeFede, Redding, and Matthews, will operate as the IC services component of a new business segment led by recently appointed VTG executive Kirk Herdman.

Last year, VTG completed the integration of its enterprise-wide capabilities under a single customer delivery model, including its two previous acquisitions, National Technologies Associates and DELTA Resources. VTG also won a string of prime contracts, earning the ACG National Capital 2020 Corporate Growth Company of the Year award. “We continue to reshape our enterprise and reposition for the future,” said Sunil Ramchand, chief growth officer of VTG. “The acquisition of Intelligent Shift accelerates our strategy, both in terms of game-changing capability growth and customer reach.”
