Mr. Ferrando moves to the role of President & CEO after previously serving as the company's President alongside Mr. Antle. He has held executive leadership roles with Salient CRGT's predecessor companies, including as CEO of CRGT and President and COO of Cherry Road Technologies, dating back to 2001.

"Tom is exceptionally qualified to lead Salient CRGT, having spun out and grown the business over nearly two decades," said Walter Florence, Managing Partner of Frontenac and a member of the Salient CRGT Board. "He approaches each customer relationship as an opportunity to address crucial IT modernization issues across our diverse mix of federal agency partners, and his deep and hands-on operating experience at Salient CRGT leaves him well suited to drive key strategic initiatives going forward. We are grateful for Brad's leadership and contributions to Salient CRGT, and we wish him all the best in his future endeavors."

"I am thrilled to be given this opportunity to lead Salient CRGT into its next phase of growth and development," said Tom Ferrando. "Over the last decade, we have successfully expanded our customer base and capabilities around digital services, health IT, data analytics, cyber, mobility, cloud and IT service management. I believe there is a tremendous opportunity in front of us for growing our business, particularly in the favorable current environment for federal services."

Mr. Nolan will help drive the overall strategic vision for the company and work closely in partnership with Mr. Ferrando to promote future growth. Mr. Nolan was most recently the CEO of Camber Corporation, which was acquired by Huntington Ingalls Industries in 2016. Prior to that, Mr. Nolan was Chairman, President and CEO of Stanley, Inc., which he took public in 2006 and then sold to CGI Group in 2010 for $1.2 billion. Under Phil's leadership, Stanley grew from a 20-person operation to a company of 5,000 employees and almost $1 billion in revenue.
