Less than two months after announcing his departure from ManTech, Bob Coleman is now gearing up for another opportunity inside the Beltway. Coleman has just partnered with the private equity firm GTCR to form Six3 Systems. The Fairfax, Va.-based company will concentrate on acquiring government services providers with a focus on national security. Coleman will serve as chief executive officer.
The news comes on the heels of ManTech’s announcement that it has begun the search for Coleman’s replacement (Coleman will retain his position as a member of the company’s board of directors). As president and chief operating officer at ManTech, Coleman steered the company toward targeted acquisitions and growth, increasing revenues from $827 million to over $1.8 billion.
“I look forward to building a business strategically focused on solving some of our nation’s toughest national security challenges,” says Coleman, whom we named one of the 20 people to watch this year. “The current political and technological environment offers a unique set of challenges and opportunities … we believe this is an attractive time to build a presence in our targeted markets,” he adds.
