Halfaker and Associates, LLC and HigherEchelon, Inc. Join Forces in a Mentor-Protégé Program

Arlington, VA., November 13, 2018 – Halfaker announced the formation of a Small Business Administration (SBA) approved Mentor-Protégé Agreement with HigherEchelon, a Service-Disabled Veteran Owned Small Business (SDVOSB). The SBA Mentor-Protégé program is a business development initiative which enables small and large companies to build strong, mutualistic relationships with shared benefits and growth opportunities.

Through this strategic partnership, Halfaker enables HigherEchelon to develop more sophisticated processes and support capabilities to effectively sell and manage larger prime contracts. In turn, HigherEchelon expands Halfaker’s knowledge base by sharing its Consulting Partner relationship with Salesforce, a cloud-based customer relationship management platform. As a testament to its growing and successful Salesforce practice, HigherEchelon was recognized as a 2018 Salesforce Consulting Partner Innovation Award winner for their work at the U.S. Military Academy at West Point and achieved a customer satisfaction rating of 9.83 out of 10.

“We are grateful to join forces with the Halfaker Team,” said HigherEchelon partners, Dr. Joe Ross and Paul Maggiano, “We have watched Dawn grow her company for many years and have been impressed with Halfaker’s professionalism and business acumen. We look forward to learning from and working with Halfaker, with an aim towards enhancing our service offerings to existing and future customers.”

“Halfaker is thrilled to join the SBA Mentor-Protégé initiative with HigherEchelon,” said Halfaker President and CEO, Dawn Halfaker. “This relationship presents an exciting opportunity which will improve and strengthen our services to our current federal customers as well as expand the reach of our respective capabilities into new industry areas.”
