Culmen provides technical, management and logistics services worldwide and customers include the Navy, Department of Energy, Department of State and others, with most of its business serving the government internationally. Analytic Strategies, which was previously known as PlanetRisk, counts the Defense Logistics Agency and Departments of Defense, Energy, Homeland Security and State, and the National Geospatial Intelligence Agency among its customers, with its business focused in the U.S.

Earlier this year, the federal services business of Analytic Strategies won its first DHS contract, a $79 million award to support the Office of Cybersecurity & Communications.Paul McQuillan, the former head of the PlanetRisk federal business and now chief operating officer of Culmen, told Defense Daily that his company is still onboarding employees for the DHS award.

“By joining forces, Culmen will be expanding their capabilities, customers and business development services,” McQuillan said in a statement.

Culmen said that with the acquisition it now has more than 200 employees. McQuillan said the employee count will continue to grow as the company increases its support under the DHS cyber security award.

Baird Capital served as the financial adviser for Analytic Strategies.
