Freedom Consulting Group, a provider of geospatial engineering, software and system engineering, and data analysis services to the intelligence and national security community, has partnered with a consortium of private investors to secure a growth capital investment to support Freedom’s continued expansion.
Freedom is also expanding its board of directors with the addition of the following directors:
- Ms. Sue Gordon, Former Senior Deputy Director of National Intelligence and Former Deputy Director of the National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency
- General Michael Hayden (USAF Ret.), Former director of central intelligence, former senior deputy director of national intelligence and former director of the National Security Agency
Freedom’s financial partner is WDG Capital, a group of seasoned investors led by Admiral James “Sandy” Winnefeld (USN Ret.), Former vice chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff and Tom Donohue, Jr, a well-known investor from the DC area, who will also join the Freedom board. Growth capital will be used to add staff; improve business operations; and support expansion into existing markets and growth into new markets. With additional financial resources, the company will also explore selected acquisitions to expand its capabilities and customer segments. The additions to the board of directors will provide national security expertise and strategic insight to support the anticipated growth.
“By aligning ourselves with this star cast, Freedom has taken a radically different path than most companies of similar size,” said Dana Gift, CEO and Founder of Freedom. “We are now positioned for significant growth as we continue to serve our existing national security clients and introduce the Freedom brand to new clients and markets. “
“Freedom has demonstrated time and time again that when you combine an incredibly skilled team with significant national security challenges, we all benefit,” said new director Sue Gordon. “I believe in freedom and am delighted to join such esteemed colleagues on this board. “
