Force 3, delivering the best in federal security, unified communications, networks, data center, and medical imaging solutions today named Les Trachtman as Chief Executive Officer. Trachtman, Chief Operating Officer since shortly after joining the technology leader in 2008, replaces founder Rocky Cintron who will now serve as Chairman of the Board.
Cintron created Force 3 in 1992, taking advantage of the burgeoning market in IT solutions for government agencies. From its modest start to today, with 300 employees and a track record of profitable growth, Cintron has led Force 3 with an infectious enthusiasm and commitment to community.
After 20 years of running and building the business, Cintron said that now is the perfect time to hand over the reigns to Trachtman, who has been instrumental in helping Force 3 improve profit margin in core business areas.
“As COO, Les has implemented game-changing processes,” Cintron said. “He has been the driving force behind our leadership programs and the catalyst to change the mix of our business. Perhaps most importantly, he has assembled the best leadership team in our industry.”
Trachtman has three decades of entrepreneurial experience in the technology industry. He previously served as CEO of several different technology companies including Transcentive and e-OneHundred Group. Prior to these ventures, he spearheaded corporate development for Progress Software and Hyperion Software.
At Force 3, Trachtman was integral in the company’s acquisition of secureRAD and has been a key leader in developing its new Support+ service offerings. Throughout his career, Trachtman has a track record of delivering value after taking over from the founder of a business and helping it operate more profitably.
“Rocky did the magic part at Force 3, starting a company from nothing and building it into a recognized leader,” Trachtman said. “In relative terms, my job is easy. I am focused on improving what’s already here. We are looking to continue to grow and become more focused and efficient in everything we do. With our keen focus on our customers’ success we intend to continue to deliver technology-based solutions that enable our customers to focus on what they do best.”
