Mckean-Defense

At McKean Defense, we believe that history is a great teacher – as long as it inspires continual improvement. It was this belief that served as the basis on which the company was established.

McKean Defense’s principals had successful careers in the Federal engineering and technical consulting arena, as well as distinguished military service. They had also “grown up” in companies known as established market leaders. It was, however, the belief that they could serve the customer better that eventually drove the decision to start a new kind of business.

McKean Defense Group was established in 2006. The company quickly captured prime contracts in the field of lifecycle engineering, and McKean acquired a small IT services company with a 20-year history in providing IT and enterprise management solutions to Federal, civilian and DOD customers. Since then, McKean has solidified the company focus, serving customers where we have the greatest strength. We have expanded into new markets where we can deliver the same level of quality and customer engagement on which the company was established. We are most successful in situations where we can apply our technical potency and creative capability to transform organizations. These core goals are still the basis for our future vision.

McKean Defense is employee owned, and values the life experiences of potential candidates, including those who have served our Military. Currently, 38% of McKean’s employee owner workforce are veterans.
