Preferred Systems Solutions has purchased Chantilly, Va.-based information technology management consulting firm Eagle Ray for an undisclosed sum.

Babs Doherty, president and CEO of Eagle Ray, will bring to PSS her over three decades’ experience in the national security space as a senior vice president within the newly created Eagle Ray Technologies Group and will report directly to Randy Morgan, PSS president and CEO and a previous Wash100 award recipient, PSS said.

Established in 2002, Eagle Ray is an agile mid-tier company with approximately 50 employees providing technical and business capabilities across the intelligence community, homeland security, defense and financial regulatory agencies.

“Eagle Ray has a tremendous reputation in the GovCon space built on solving tough technical problems of national significance,” Morgan said. “Babs has an exceptional background that includes both executive leadership of a growth company along with a technical background where she consistently demonstrated an innovative approach to solving tough technical problems.”

Morgan added Eagle Ray’s experience in addressing technical problems, delivering innovative systems and executing collaborative strategies to facilitate communications between agencies and the contracting community make the company an ideal fit as PSS works to build up its platform through the addition and development of new capabilities meant to support clients’ missions.

McLean, Va.-based PSS, founded in 1991, provides technology platforms and services to IC, defense and civilian agencies across software and systems engineering, cybersecurity and cloud mission support, financial management, acquisition, program support, data analytics and high-performance computing and other IT areas.
