Trowbridge & Trowbridge celebrated its 10-year anniversary this summer, having been founded in 2006 by President and CEO Karen Trowbridge. Today, the privately held company has more than 300 employees working on mission-critical, performance-driven defense and civilian programs. In the past five years alone, the company’s revenues have grown by nearly 500 percent.
“We are committed to being a valued partner in our customers’ mission success,” Karen Trowbridge said. “This collaborative culture has inspired our dedication to continual improvement. It has also greatly influenced our decision to develop new in-house capabilities and make strategic investments in staff and resources to provide the tools, assets and best practices for exceptional customer service.”
As a small startup, Trowbridge won contracts with the National Institutes of Health and the Energy Department. In 2010, Trowbridge acquired Altech Services, Inc., which had extensive experience supporting Defense Department IT and and telecommunications systems.
The company later won key contracts with the department of Labor, Treasury and Veterans Affairs, as well as with the U.S. Army, U.S. Air Force, U.S. Navy and other DOD entities including the Joint Service Provider, Joint Staff, and Defense Information Systems Agency.
In a release, the company said its success can be contributed to “a superior management team complemented by an employee-centric, award-winning corporate culture.”
CEO Trowbridge has built a diversified company based on a record of excellent past performance, proven quality methodologies, and industry best practices. COO Chris Brandell, an experienced executive who joined the firm shortly after the Altech acquisition, has expertly guided the development of Trowbridge’s operations, ensuring that customer and contractual requirements are provided in an innovative, cost-effective, and low-risk manner. Together, the Trowbridge executive team has fostered a corporate environment that motivates employees to build fulfilling careers and encourages their engagement in their customers’ success.
