Three information technology veterans have joined forces to launch Spear Inc., a new federal IT contracting firm.

Spear is the creation of Richard Pineda, Noel Samuel and Gino Antonelli, who established the company in February, according to the company announcement.

The new company will deliver IT services, consulting and business process outsourcing services primarily to business partners and federal customers.

Pineda, CEO of the new company, formerly was president of Dell’s federal government services division.

He also previously served as the division’s chief operations leader, responsible for Dell’s business operations and service delivery to civilian, defense and national security customers

Antonelli will serve as chief operations officer and Samuel as chief financial officer for Spear.

The founders have more than 60 years of combined IT and consulting solutions experience, according to Spear’s announcement.

In February, Dell realigned its federal business and named Joe Ayers to lead federal defense as vice president and general manager.

Chuck Lyles will oversee the company’s federal, state and local government sectors.
