Chief Operating Officer Sangita Subramanian said, “The announcement of this award is a great start to the holiday season in a difficult year. I am so proud of everyone at OM Group from our programmers and project managers to our support staff. Pulling together and adapting to all the changes this year, our team showed what OM Group is capable of achieving under even the most trying circumstances, proving we are exactly the type of partner the U.S. Navy needs.”
Mahesh Srinivasan, Chief Technology Officer, said, “Earning a spot on the NAVFAC contract establishes OM Group as a serious player in the Naval IT sector, bringing forward-looking Cloud and DevSecOps capabilities to NAVFAC.
