The following is an introduction to Amentum’s 2021 Year in Review written by our CEO, John Vollmer. You can download the full Year in Review report here.
As we bring our second year as an independent company to a close, I find myself thinking back to the beginning of 2021. We realized it was going to be a monumental year, with the integration of DynCorp International and, with vaccines on the horizon, what we hoped would be the beginning of the end of the pandemic. We looked forward to seeing our clients, partners, employees, coworkers, and communities in person.
As a company, we performed beyond expectations and had one of our best years ever. Here are a few of the things I’m most proud of:
- We won several key bids, including contracts to support Customs and Border Protection Aviation and environmental cleanup work at the Oak Ridge Reservation and Savannah River Site.
- We won seats on new contract vehicles and stood up new capabilities like our Model Based Systems Engineering Collaboration Center.
- We adapted to the changing situation in Afghanistan and supported our customers with their critical needs associated with the largest airlift in history.
- We worked through the successful integration of DI and debuted Amentum at key customer-facing events including the Air Force Association’s Air, Space & Cyber Conference and the Association of the United States Army’s Annual Meeting.
- We were recognized within our industry with four Military Friendly Top 10 awards, as well as being named #23 on the Defense News Top 100 list and #14 on the Washington Technology Top Federal Contractors list.
- We found new opportunities to innovate, including the award of an Other Transaction Authority for a Live Training System Prototype, as well as implementing new technology solutions and offerings that helped to better focus our support on our clients’ missions and make our business more efficient.
- We supported the communities where we live and work, including Red Cross initiatives focused on western U.S. wildfires and Afghan refugee relief and veterans and military families through our new program with the Make-A-Wish foundation, Operation Dream Maker, and our continued commitment to Yellow Ribbon Fund.
These achievements wouldn’t have been possible without the dedication of our employees and partners. I would like to thank you all for the resilience you demonstrated throughout 2021. It was another unconventional year and every single person had to continually adjust to achieve success.
The organizational resilience we have demonstrated since our company launch has led to transformational growth and tremendous momentum. I look forward to all we will achieve together in 2022, and welcome the many new faces through our acquisition of PAE.
Please enjoy this look back with pride in all we have accomplished together.
–John Volmer, CEO
