New Arlington-based tech contractor names chief financial officer
Bob Kwaja hired by Two Six Technologies
Two Six Technologies Inc., a new national security technology provider based in Arlington, announced Wednesday it has hired Bob Kwaja as chief financial officer.
The company was formed in February after an affiliate of global investment firm The Carlyle Group acquired IST Research and Two Six Labs. Among Two Six Technologies’ clients are the Department of Defense, the intelligence community and other U.S. national security agencies. Kwaja, who previously was BlueHalo’s senior vice president of finance and corporate development and has worked in executive roles at Centauri and Belcan, will focus on strategic growth in the sector, according to a news release from the company.
Kwaja, who has a degree in finance from the University of Maryland, has worked in mergers and acquisitions, as well as finance in the aerospace, defense and government sectors.
“As we round out the senior team of our newly formed enterprise, we’re delighted to add someone of Bob’s caliber, who brings an ideal skill set of financial and M&A expertise combined with relevant operational experience in the cyber, defense, and intelligence sectors,” Joe Logue, CEO of Two Six Technologies, said in a statement. “Bob has been highly successful in creating value at private equity-backed GovCon companies via both organic and inorganic growth — all of which will provide significant benefits to Two Six Technologies.”
The company has 285 employees and a technical presence in more than 40 countries.
