Former Perspecta CEO lines up his next gig

Blue Delta Capital Partners, the venture investment firm focused on government technology companies, adds former Perspecta CEO Mac Curtis as a venture fellow and he fills us in on what that entails.

Blue Delta Capital Partners, the venture investment firm that acquires non-controlling equity stakes in government technology companies, has added another familiar industry name to its already deep bench.

Former Perspecta CEO Mac Curtis has taken on a venture fellow position at Blue Delta that will see him sit on some boards of directors for portfolio companies and identify new investment opportunities in the market.

Also on the agenda for Curtis will be to provide guidance to other executives that represent the “next two generations in our industry,” Curtis told us Tuesday afternoon.

“It’s good to step back and be able to say ‘Have you thought about doing it this way,’ and the CEOs I’ve spoken with are very eager to learn, appreciative to learn,” Curtis added.

Curtis’ next gig at Blue Delta also is a reunion for him with Phil Nolan, a general partner at Blue Delta and most recently the lead independent director at Perspecta. They are five months removed from completing the sale of Perspecta to Peraton.

While this is just the beginning at Blue Delta, Curtis anticipates the “people and process side” of running a company will be a primary line of discussion he will have with other business leaders.

He said that can include how to hit certain revenue growth milestones, what kind of business development structure to have, when to and when not to file a bid protest, and even how to work with the Defense Contract Audit Agency when they come calling.

All of that meaning the “blocking and tackling associated with running a business,” Curtis said.
