WASHINGTON, Oct. 13, 2017 – Dennis Kelly, president and CEO of Buchanan & Edwards Inc., an award-winning and fast-growing technology leader creating transformative solutions for government customers, participated yesterday as a speaker at Pillsbury’s 17th Annual Defense, Aerospace and Government Services M&A Conference at The Ritz-Carlton in McLean, Virginia.

“In today’s highly competitive government technology marketplace, augmenting organic growth through smart, selective, highly strategic M&A activities is a must for accelerating rapid growth and expanding the depth, scope and ultimately the value of long-term government customer relationships,” says Kelly. “For example, through our acquisition of R2C earlier this year, we were able to combine R2C’s specialized capabilities in the areas of front end data governance and curation with Buchanan & Edwards’ core expertise with back-end data analytics to create a powerful, full lifecycle of analytics solutions for our combined customers across the national security spectrum. This allowed us to offer greater capabilities to both organizations’ customers in a way that also set us apart from competitors in the field of analytics. That is powerful.”

The event featured leading companies, executives and industry experts who came together to discuss merger and acquisition trends and strategies in the Federal sector.
