Booz Allen Hamilton rang the opening bell at the New York Stock Exchange on Thursday to kick off a year-long celebration to honor the company’s 100th anniversary.
The management and technology consulting firm was founded by Edwin Booz in 1914 and has worked with clients such as the U.S. Navy, American Red Cross and NASA, Booz Allen said.
“We’ve built strong client relationships, created a culture to attract and retain the most talented staff, managed the business well to deliver value to our shareholders, and supported the communities in which we live and work,” Ralph W. Shrader, Booz Allen chairman and CEO.
“As we look ahead to our next century, we will continue to evolve and grow to help our clients meet their demanding and ever-changing missions,” Shrader added.
Booz Allen is sponsoring various events in 2014 such as exhibits at the National Gallery of Art in Washington and the USS Midway Museum in San Diego.
