Blue Delta Capital Partners has appointed Mac Curtis, former chairman of the board, president and CEO of Perspecta and seven-time Wash100 Award recipient, as a venture fellow who will join some of the boards of the McLean, Virginia-based growth equity firm’s portfolio companies and support their growth initiatives.
“Mac will [also] help us see new investment opportunities, assist our companies in scaling both through organic growth and occasional tuck-in acquisitions, and help us continue to assimilate the best talent in the market into the companies that we have backed,” Phil Nolan, a general partner at Blue Delta, said in a statement published Wednesday.
Commenting on his appointment, Curtis told Executive Mosaic, “I have been fortunate throughout my entire career to have worked with some of the most elite teams in the GovCon industry. Joining the proven all star team of executives at Blue Delta is the continuity of achievement only fortunate executives could realize as they build on the foundation of many significant team successes.”
Curtis will collaborate with the chief executives of Blue Delta’s portfolio companies and with its advisory board that includes Donna Morea, chair of the board of directors at Science Applications International Corp., and Mike Daniels, board chair at CACI International.
The appointee brings to Blue Delta Capital Partners decades-long experience in government contracting. Under his leadership, Perspecta, which now operates as part of Peraton, grew into a $7.1 billion company that was acquired by Veritas Capital. He is a consistent recipient of Executive Mosaic’s Wash100 Award that recognized the contributions of GovCon leaders.
“Mac Curtis’ long list of achievements has been documented in a chronology of his career, which was published in Executive Mosaic recently,” said Jim Garrettson, founder and CEO of Executive Mosaic.
“Mac enjoys the luxury of one of the best personal executive brands in our industry. [His] achievements have been recognized across the industry by a vast array of awards including the achievement of seven Wash100 leadership awards. This enviable recognition has been equaled by only a handful of industry executives,” Garrettson added.
