Former PSC head launches consultancy

Stan Soloway of the Professional Services Council.

Stan Soloway, longtime leader of the Professional Services Council, is starting a new consulting venture to help vendors make sense of the federal acquisition environment.

Celero Strategies, launched Feb. 8, targets companies that are navigating an increasingly confusing federal acquisition world in which policy, budgets and market forces are colliding, Soloway told FCW. The firm will offer strategic and growth consulting, market analysis and positioning, organizational development, merger and acquisition support, and crisis communications.

Celero Strategies will not market its services to agencies. "There will be no direct delivery to government," he said, adding that the company's website will be up in a couple of weeks.

Soloway's experience in acquisition is long and deep. Before his 15-year tenure at PSC, he was the Defense Department's deputy undersecretary for acquisition reform during the Clinton administration. He said he continues to "do a lot of work with the government as a resource."

Soloway announced his retirement from PSC in September 2015. At the time, he did not indicate what his plans were. He said it was a difficult decision to leave, but "if I want to do something different and substantial before I retire, the time to do so is now."
