VTG has acquired Fairfax, Virginia-based systems engineering company Intelligent Shift for an undisclosed sum in a move to add intelligence agencies to the former’s national security customer portfolio.

Chantilly, Virginia-based VTG said Wednesday that the transaction also expands the company’s systems, digital and software engineering support offerings for the defense and intelligence sectors.

John Hassoun, president and CEO of VTG, said the deal represents a key step in the company’s transformation strategy and adds technical services to its target markets.

“I am excited to welcome the Intelligent Shift team to VTG,” said John Hassoun, VTG president and CEO. “This acquisition represents the next chapter in the strategic transformation of VTG. Intelligent Shift brings unique technical expertise that positions us to deliver a more differentiated suite of engineering and digital solutions to a customer base that now spans the Defense enterprise and the Intelligence Community.”

Intelligent Shift founders Alissa Redding, Mike DeFede and Mike Matthews will continue to oversee the entity as an IC services division under the national security solutions segment led by Kirk Herdman.

VTG made the acquisition following its deals for National Technologies Associates and Delta Resources last year.
