George Batsakis Named EVP, Chief Strategy Officer at 1901 Group

1901 Group has hired industry veteran George Batsakis as executive vice president and chief strategy officer as the company prepares for its next phase of growth and expansion into the public sector market.

Batsakis, an Army veteran and senior industry leader with large scale P&L experience, has previously held senior executive positions at EDS, Northrop Grumman, SRA, CSRA/General Dynamics Information Technology and most recently was Accenture Federal Services’ defense portfolio lead. In that role, he served Defense Department and intelligence agencies as a technology expert.

Batsakis will lead 1901 Group’s strategy planning and development, while providing expertise in executive management, operations, new business development, emerging technology and technology partnerships. He’ll also leverage his experience implementing new technology platforms to drive rapid company growth.

The hire follows 1901 Group’s compound annual growth rate of close to 30% over the last six years, and the company’s need to expand its leadership team, “infuse additional technologies” into its platform and add new capabilities and processes to exceed past growth rates, according to CEO Sonu Singh.

“George’s skill set in leading technology and innovation-oriented businesses coupled with his keen understanding of market trends are an ideal match for the company,” Singh said. “We are excited to have George on the 1901 Group team.”

And after years of building and leading teams in government contracting, Batsakis said he’s excited to spend the next phase of his career at 1901 Group.

“The company’s leadership has been ahead of the curve since its inception through their commitment to cloud-delivered managed services, core technology partnerships, cybersecurity, and the requisite workforce development needed to deliver for public sector customers,” Batsakis said.

“That same commitment to innovation and differentiated services provide the ideal platform for continued growth, market leadership, and building the workforce of the future for cloud-delivered capabilities,” he added.
