ExecutiveBiz selected CGI Federal’s George Schindler as a “Person to Watch in 2011.”
CGI Federal was already on the ascent. Then, it acquired Stanley for $1 billion this past May, and more than doubled its U.S. government business.
Leading the way has been current CGI Federal President George Schindler. With the Stanley acquisition, Schindler and senior leadership saw a chance to expand the company’s reach into the defense and intelligence markets. So far, that hunch has paid off.
In October, CGI won $18 million in new contracts with the U.S. Marine Corps. Those awards include providing training support for the USMC wide-range transformation modernization program. Also, included is an $11 million firm-fixed-price prime contract under the company’s Commercial Enterprise Omnibus support services (CEOss) contract.
“We are thrilled to begin work for this new Marine Corps customer, ” Schindler said at the time. “Our mission is to support the warfighter and we are prepared to do so throughout all facilities within the Corps.”
Weeks later, Oberon (a Stanley Company, now part of CGI) was awarded a$28 million contract to support the Kyrgystan Border Service. “We are proud to be chosen for this work, ” Schindler said. “Providing a strategic information sharing communication system that is robust and reliable will help the Border Service secure Kyrgyzstan’s borders against transnational threats.”
Under Schindler’s leadership, CGI Federal is also maintaining a strong showing in other areas. Over the summer, the company was awarded a five-year contract to modernize and maintain three Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) websites, a critical resource for 44 million beneficiaries.
“We will continue to bring our healthcare knowledge and technical expertise to this proven partnership as we help CMS achieve its vision to deliver a transformed and modernized healthcare system, ” Schindler said.
At last count, CGI’s revenue was at $3.7 billion; its order backlog $13.3 billion. Odds are, we’ll see that growth continue into 2011, as a result of Stanley and, perhaps, future acquisitions on the horizon.
