BALTIMORE, DECEMBER 10, 2013 – BrownIT Holdings Corporation announced that Mark Hogan has been confirmed as a member of the Board of Directors.
Mark Brown, CEO of BrownIT Holdings said, “We are enthusiastic that Mr. Hogan has agreed to contribute his considerable talents and expertise to the board of BrownIT. His experience in the government contracting community will be invaluable to BrownIT as the company seeks aggressive expansion in the federal market.”
Mark Hogan, CEO of Government Sales Specialists (GSS), is a highly seasoned expert in procurement procedures and business capture within numerous federal agencies. For nearly 30 years, Mr. Hogan has built and managed some of the largest and most successful government sales organizations for the nation’s leading technology firms.
As the first Director of Civilian Agencies for Oracle, Mr. Hogan helped ignite the success of one of the largest software companies in the country. As VP and General Manager of BEA Government Systems, he grew revenues from less than $2 million to more than $148 million in less than three years.
While running BEA Government Systems, Mr. Hogan saw a growing need from hundreds of innovative technology companies who desperately needed help in selling to the federal government. Capitalizing on this need, he formed GSS to help those companies develop successful government sales programs. On Mr. Hogan’s initiative, he successfully assembled a team of highly experienced federal sales executives, with networks that extended into the C level of the civilian, intelligence and defense agencies. By leveraging a support team of inside sales reps, marketing specialists, and researchers, Mr. Hogan has built GSS into the largest and most successful government sales outsourcing firm in the country.
Mr. Hogan has served on a number of advisory boards as well as the Congressional Blue Ribbon Task Force on Aviation Safety, formed after the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks. A recognized expert in selling to the government, he is a frequent speaker on the subject and a guest lecturer at the Robert H. Smith School of Business at the University of Maryland as well as Harvard Business School.
As BrownIT makes preparations to be a publicly traded company, this addition of Mark Hogan will only bolster the company’s credibility and marketing proficiency in the federal government. With over 13 years in the government market already, BrownIT is positioning itself for rapid growth in large organizations such as the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) and the National Institutes of Health (NIH).
“I am privileged to be selected as the first board member of BrownIT. The company’s growth strategy has been well defined and it will be very exciting to help shape this company into a market leader,” explained Mark Hogan.
With a solid foundation in the healthcare IT sector, BrownIT is poised to be a part of one of the most rapidly evolving industries over the next decade. Leveraging their experience in this growing sector, BrownIT is seizing the opportunity to become a market leader with a comprehensive and aggressive corporate expansion strategy. Having secured a substantial funding commitment, BrownIT is launching a notable acquisition campaign to increase strength in the government market as well solidifying a customer base in the commercial sector as well.
