MCR Acquires JB&A, Inc., Expands Intelligence Programs

MCR, LLC has acquired executive branch professional services provider JB&A, INC. for an undisclosed amount as part of a strategic plan to increase its competitiveness through acquisitions and organic growth. It is MCR’s third acquisition in the past two years.

MCR will immediately integrate JB&A into its federal structure as a new Intelligence Programs Division, where current JB&A CEO John R. Knight will serve as senior vice president.

The division will expand MCR’s offerings to intelligence and defense clients by incorporating JB&A’s strategic planning, programming and budgeting and manpower analytical support into MCR’s strategic program management services portfolio. On top of having expertise with Defense Department and Department of the Army planning, JB&A also designs automated decision support system applications and strategic planning architectures.

“The JB&A acquisition continues our strategic plan of using acquisitions and organic growth to mold MCR into a strong competitor in the civilian, defense and intelligence arenas and provide our customers with the types of capabilities and support they need, ” said MCR CEO and President Neil F. Albert.
