ManTech International Corp. will continue hiring employees for cybersecurity and technical services positions this year despite a dip in revenue during fiscal 2012, according to a Washington Business Journal article.
The company reported fourth-quarter revenue of $621.8 million last year with total revenues of $2.58 billion, less than the $2.87 billion in 2011.
“We entered the year with record levels of bookings, backlog and cash,” said ManTech CEO George Pedersen.
“From this foundation, we believe revenues can grow in 2013 based upon momentum on current programs. As evidence of this, we have added more than 600 people to the direct staff and our head count in the past four months,” he added.
According to the company, they are hiring more workers to support recent wins under the Army’s strategic services sourcing procurement program.
The company has had “a lot of success in hiring in 2012 for the intelligence community business and we expect that to continue and even grow in 2013,” said William Varner, president and COO of the mission, cyber & intelligence solutions group.
In June 2012, ManTech won a $2.85 billion contractor logistics sustainment and support contract from the U.S. Army.
Daniel Keefe, president and chief operating officer of the technical services group, said this win led to the hiring of 500 employees and will spur 200 more hires in 2013.
