ConceptSolutions names new business chief

ConceptSolutions, an information management and technology consulting company serving commercial, government and military organizations, has named Harry Thomas Newman director of business development. He will be specializing in Defense Department intelligence contracts.

During Newman’s 12-year career in the DOD Intelligence Information Systems community, he has helped companies secure contract awards totaling more than $5.5 billion, according to a company statement released today.

Since 1998, Newman has led the business development efforts at General Dynamics Information Technology, where he was responsible for securing contracts.

The contracts included:

  • The Counterintelligence Field Activity, worth $7 million.
  • The Defense Intelligence Agency’s Human Intelligence Operational Communications Network, worth $12 million.
  • The preservation of existing Intelligence Information, Command and Control, Equipment and Enhancements business base, valued at $12 million.
Before he came to General Dynamics, Newman served as a business development specialist at BTG from 1995 to 1998. Before that, he was a program support specialist at Bell Atlantic, where he was assigned to the Advanced Technology Demonstration Network.

Newman earned a bachelor’s degree in political science from Marymount University in 1994.

“With his exemplary track record building business in the defense intelligence community, Tom Newman gives ConceptSolutions a decisive edge in winning new and expanding our existing DOD contracts,” Phong Mai, president and chief executive officer, ConceptSolutions, said in the statement. “Mr. Newman significantly strengthens our efforts in the public sector.”
