"Tom is exceptionally qualified to lead Salient CRGT, having spun out and grown the business over nearly two decades," said Walter Florence, Managing Partner of Frontenac and a member of the Salient CRGT Board. "He approaches each customer relationship as an opportunity to address crucial IT modernization issues across our diverse mix of federal agency partners, and his deep and hands-on operating experience at Salient CRGT leaves him well suited to drive key strategic initiatives going forward. We are grateful for Brad's leadership and contributions to Salient CRGT, and we wish him all the best in his future endeavors."

"I am thrilled to be given this opportunity to lead Salient CRGT into its next phase of growth and development," said Tom Ferrando. "Over the last decade, we have successfully expanded our customer base and capabilities around digital services, health IT, data analytics, cyber, mobility, cloud and IT service management. I believe there is a tremendous opportunity in front of us for growing our business, particularly in the favorable current environment for federal services."

Mr. Nolan will help drive the overall strategic vision for the company and work closely in partnership with Mr. Ferrando to promote future growth.

Under Phil's leadership, Stanley grew from a 20-person operation to a company of 5,000 employees and almost $1 billion in revenue.

When applications are hosted on servers, they produce immense quantities of logging data. Quality engineers should verify that apps are producing log data that is existent, correct, consumable, and complete. Otherwise, apps in production are not easily monitored, have issues that are difficult to detect, and cannot be corrected quickly.
