Adrian Rich, Managing Principal, started STS late in 2014 as a federally-focused digital consultancy. From its inception, STS focused on helping mid-size and large businesses bring their IT solutions into the Homeland Security space. Today, Adrian leads STS’s Corporate strategic initiatives while building an employee culture that facilitates and fuels the continued success at STS.

Prior to joining STS, Adrian was a senior director at General Dynamics IT in charge of a broad swath of its Homeland Security business development portfolio. He spent several years prior to his GDIT tenure running professional services and business development at Enterprise Solutions Realized. Adrian’s “IT leadership” identity stems from the beginning of his career as a special education teacher in Baltimore City where he evolved into a technical project manager where he led all manner of IT projects in education, private industry and eventually, the federal space.

“Our company exists for two main purposes: 1) to understand our customers’ business/mission needs and apply out IT savvy toward elegant solutions & 2) to provide an onramp to motivated professionals into the hottest IT careers on the market. It’s a symbiotic relationship between our customers, our business and our team. We provide technically superior solutions to our customers, we then build our business, and our growing business provides onramps for the non-traditional workforce that we mentor and apprentice.”

Adrian holds a Bachelors in Government from the College of William & Mary, a Masters in Teaching from Morgan State University and a Professional Certificate in Business Leadership from Johns Hopkins University.
