new ways to thrill our federal clients.
I am most proud of the culture – the Ambit Way – we’ve built. When we started Ambit, I discovered that I hadn’t just launched a company… I’d launched a cause. I spent years working in federal agencies and seen firsthand where their processes were broken and how we could run their programs smarter, faster, and cheaper. I’d met dozens of bright and talented... people who shared our values and were committed to improving government. We knew that together we could help government deliver better services to the citizen, so we decided we would show them how.
Although we were technically a woman owned Service-Disabled Veteran-Owned Small Business, we never relied on federal set-asides to build our business. We competed on our talents and our merits. And we won.
If you browse through our website you can gain a sense of the impact we’ve had in the federal space. We’ve run mission critical programs during periods of national emergency, we’ve run the single largest revenue producing program in the entire government, we’ve streamlined dozens of programs and recovered more than $112 million in operating costs. We’ve won individual awards, company awards, and industry awards. And we’ve gotten smarter, stronger, and more capable every single year.
My dream for the future of Ambit is still the same as it was back in 2004: that every Ambiteer finds their calling; that they feel like they work as part of an extended family that supports and nurtures their efforts, that they’re engaged in essential and important work, and that they’re making a difference in the lives of millions of citizens through the work we all perform.
