Future spending cuts will likely come in the form of a gentle ramp and be less aggressive than previously feared, Salient Federal Solutions CEO Brad Antle told the Washington Post.

Antle discussed the potential effects of cuts under sequestration with ExecutiveBiz in November 2012 as part of his executive spotlight (click here to read the full Q&A).

Antle’s comments to the Post’s Marjorie Censer come nearly a week after Congress agreed to delay automatic across-the-board budget cuts for two months as part of a tax package (click over to ExecutiveGov for more coverage of the deal).

Defense analyst Loren Thompson told the Post defense industry executives are starting to believe the cuts under sequestration will not happen as originally thought, adding any spending cuts will be modest.

EADS North America CEO Sean O’Keefe told the Post the company is not issuing layoff notices.
