Last we reported, Bob Coleman was getting ready to start his own company, Six3 Systems, which specializes in providing national security and defense intelligence services. Now comes word that Six3 Systems and GTCR, one of the nation’s leading private equity firms, have announced plans to acquire Harding Security Associates, Inc. HSA is a provider of identity intelligence, forensics analysis and security services to the federal government. Backed by over 350 employees, the company provides mission-critical intelligence and counter-intelligence training and security services to the DoD and key civilian agencies.
“We view this deal as a critical first step in achieving our long term objective of building a highly specialized national security services provider that is focused on solving our nation’s most pressing security challenges domestically and abroad,” says Coleman, who was named one of ExecutiveBiz’s top 20 people to watch this year. “HSA is working at the heart of the identity intelligence and forensics mission, and I look forward to continuing to build that capability under Six3 Systems.”
