VMD Systems Integrators Inc.

Vienna, Va.

Customers: Federal Aviation Administration and Veterans Affairs Department

How the customers benefited: For the Federal Aviation Administration, Brokaw helped coordinate an effort to create a Web application to collect and manage reports on 12,000 annual air safety incidents. More than 10,000 people use the system. The system allows broader access to analytical data and is helping FAA develop new safety measures.

For the Veterans Affairs Department, Brokaw led an effort to develop a system to manage physical assets, such as medical centers, clinics and regional offices. The system will guide management of major construction projects, develop reports requested by Congress and improve financial management.

What makes him a leader: Brokaw has been instrumental in VMD growing from about 21 employees and $2.3 million in revenue at the beginning of 2006 to more than 40 employees and $6 million in revenue by June. The company also went from having no prime contracts to holding five prime contracts. For the FAA project, Brokaw pulled together a team of government experts and other contractors. He also established a mentor/protégé relationship with L-3 Communications Inc.
