Steven Demetriou, chairman and CEO of Jacobs, has said that the company“™s integration of KeyW is “off to a great start“ as it seeks to leverage the latter“™s low-Earth orbit and space intelligence offerings.
Demetriou said in an interview with Bloomberg earlier this month that the company“™s acquisition of KeyW will support efforts to expand Jacobs“™ cybersecurity and intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance portfolio as well as its footprint in the intelligence community.
He added that the acquisition, which was completed in June, will help Jacobs support NASA ahead of the Artemis mission to the moon.
“We see it as a tremendous long-term growth for the company,“ noted Demetriou.
Demetriou“™s comments come after Jacobs announced plans to transition from an engineering firm to a professional services entity. The Dallas, Texas-based company also plans to change its name to Jacobs Solutions as part of the transition.
According to Demetriou, the company“™s rebranding will support the company“™s work providing environmental clean-up services to the U.S. government in an effort to address water contamination through toxic per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances.
