Member Thoughts: Quiet Patriots

by Cristina Mossi, CEO, Development InfoStructure, Inc. (Devis)
Member, CIDC Executive Advisory Board

At PSC’s January 26, 2015 Leadership Summit, Admiral James Winnefeld, Jr., vice chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, thanked the attendees, their firms, and their staff for their service to our country and acknowledged us collectively as patriots. Having defended our country’s national interests abroad in a very direct way his entire life, it was a moment of pride for everyone to be acknowledge by one of our nation’s top warriors. 

It is easy to get lost in the immediacy of today’s federal professional services world chasing market opportunities, wrestling with acquisition challenges, and working hard on many hot-button issues only peripherally related to mission achievement. We take a few days each year to remind ourselves and our staff why we started the firm 23 years ago—to make a difference in the lives of people around the world by using IT as a lever. We renew our commitment and vision of future possibilities for advancing people, in underdeveloped countries and in our own underserved populations, who would otherwise have no voice. We are not warriors, yet we fight. We don’t have uniforms or GS in our titles, yet we serve. On our best days we stand side-by-side with our government partners with a shared sense of purpose and accomplishment.

PSC’s direct value to my firm and those other small business like us is the ability to act as a shared, thoughtful, and respected voice to those we chose to serve. In subtle ways PSC serves as a reminder to our sponsors that we are here, we care, and we can help them set-aside the distractions of a bureaucratic world and refocus on the mission that has brought us all together—as partners, as teammates, and, yes, as patriots. Find an opportunity and join the fight.
