DC Private Equity Firm Buys Catapult, Promotes Mark Hunker To CEO

Washington-based private equity firm DC Capital Partners has acquired Catapult Technology and has appointed Mark Hunker president and CEO.

Catapult said Hunker succeeds Randy Slager, Catapult’s founder and CEO, who will join the board of directors and remain involved in strategic planning and business development.

Hunker previously served as Catapult’s chief operating officer and executive vice president over the last 10 years.

Catapult executives remaining in place include:

  • Robert Smith, chief administrative officer and executive vice president
  • David Thornton, chief financial officer and executive vice president
  • David Lyons, chief technology officer and executive vice president, technology and management solutions
  • John Scarcella, executive vice president, enterprise systems

KippsDeSanto & Co. acted as exclusive financial adviser to Catapult in this transaction.

DC Capital is expanding its government services and offerings through this acquisition, President Thomas Campbell said in a release.

The private equity firm also owns Strategic Intelligence Group, who provides operational, analytic, training and support to intelligence, defense and law enforcement agencies at the federal and local levels.

DC Capital also owns Kickstand, a professional services firm that works with the White House and other executive agencies in performance management, cybersecurity, information sharing, cloud computing and other areas.

New York City-based private equity firm The Jordan Company acquired defense contractor VT Services in May.
