Several top government contractors and industry experts attended Baird’s 2018 Government Services and Defense Conference.

“2018 has been a transformational year of M&A at scale in the government services and defense market,” Jean Stack, managing director for global investment banking at Baird, told GovConWire.

Stack added that she expects 2019 to be a notable year for small and mid-tier M&As, spinoffs and divestitures.

One of the GovCon leaders who participated in the Baird-hosted event is ICF (Nasdaq: ICFI) CEO Sudhakar Kesavan, who spoke about the Fairfax, Va.-based tech consulting services provider’s positive financial performance.
