It’s been a busy year for Delta Solutions and Strategies, headquartered in Colorado Springs.
The company has hired 61 people, nearly doubling its size, and is on track to hire at least 13 more, according to its web site. Delta Solutions has been headquartered in the Springs since 2000 and also has a satellite office in Huntsville, Ala.
“We’ve been diversifying,” said CEO Kelly Roth. “We’re reaching out to other places because of the downturn and the government cutbacks.”
Despite ongoing haggling in Congress over the defense budget, Delta Solutions has hired based on expansion of existing contracts and gaining new ones. The company provides advising and assistance services, with a heavy focus on information technology, cyber security, facial recognition systems, engineering and strategic planning.
But, Roth notes, it hasn’t been easy. The downturn meant that the company outsourced some of its functions. The company reduced its overhead costs, restructured and diversified to drive its growth.
“We also use local vendors for that,” she said. “We’ve been able to forge some really great partnerships with the local business community and we’re proud to be a part of that.”
Roth said the company uses other local businesses – from attorneys to office supplies – all from Colorado Springs. Not only does that move make good financial sense, she says it fosters a sense of being part of the business community.
Roth said the new job opportunities focus on national security, space operations and information technology.
