Executive Mosaic’s Weekly GovCon Round-Up: e4e Acquisition, Recent M&A Activity and Top 10 Stories

Jim Garrettson, Executive Mosaic CEO

Philippines Growth Fuels Executive Mosaic’s e4e Acquisition  
Executive Biz recently highlighted how the Philippines plans to build a potential $14 billion development. This New Clark city project, as reported by Business Insider, will be located approximately 75 miles outside Manila, the Filipino capital, with construction set to begin in 2022 and the BCDA Groupand Surbana Jurong serving as developers.
The city will accommodate up to 2 million people, with five districts intended for business, government, agriculture, education and recreation functions. In addition, New Clark will feature an agro-industrial park, sports complex, green space, driverless cars and other technologies that seek to reduce water and energy consumption. This initiative and amenities have the added benefit of much-needed congestion relief in Manila.
In the ExecutiveBiz article, I discussed how the New Clark project builds upon the strong, economic growth the Philippines has seen in recent years. Because of this, it was with great pride that we at Executive Mosaic could announce Tuesday that ArchIntel, a provider of concise actionable intelligence to business leaders, acquired e4e Global Services Philippines, Inc.
This acquisition not only increases the company’s global technology reach and robust service offerings, but also demonstrates our commitment to growth in the region and plans for continued investment. This investment will enable us to build upon our market-leading daily executive briefs and competitive intelligence reporting that keep you informed about crucial GovCon developments. By providing customized reports unique to each customer, we’re able to serve those who serve the mission and allow busy executives to know what they need to know.
I am extremely proud and encouraged of the work we’re doing at Executive Mosaic, ArchIntel and the Potomac Officers Club. I look forward with great excitement as we continue to expand in the Philippines, Tysons, Va., and beyond.

Thank you,

Jim Garrettson
CEO and founder, ArchIntel, Executive Mosaic and the Potomac Officers Club
