Stuart Bradie, president and CEO of KBR, said in a recent interview with The Silicon Review that the company's leadership team pursued a strategy five years ago to expand its government services market presence.

He told the publication the strategic pivot helped the Houston-based company add technical offerings for U.S. military and federal civilian agencies and increase access to public sector funding opportunities.

KBR transformed its government arm through the acquisitions of Stinger Ghaffarian Technologies, Wyle Laboratories and Honeywell International's technology solutions unit.

The company unveiled its updated logo and website in May to reflect its status as a global provider of technology platforms and professional services.

According to Bradie, KBR works to innovate and embrace new technology as part of efforts to help customers address project goals.
