ASI CEO buys the company

ASI Government CEO Timothy Cooke has bought the company from its private equity owner Excellere Partners.

Terms of the deal were not disclosed. Excellere bought ASI in 2008. The value of that transaction also were never disclosed.

With the sale to Cooke, Excellere also divested the knowledge and learning products division of ASI, which includes its Virtual Acquisition Office product and other offerings. The products group was led by Balaji Ramanujam, CIO and senior vice president of products.

Moving forward ASI will focus solely on consulting, advisory service and support to government agencies. The company has more than 100 consultant working with the Defense Department and the military services as well as civilian and intelligence agencies.

Cooke’s leadership team will include David Shields, William Randolph, Peggy Alfonso, Ann-Marie Johnson, Anne Laurent, Gary Winch and Tom Fortunado.

“As they have since 1996, federal agencies will continue to be able to turn to ASI Government LLC for unrivaled expertise, trusted experience and unparalleled thought leadership,” Cooke said in a statement.

ASI provides consulting and advisory services around acquisition policy and strategy, category management, cost-price analysis, capital planning, IT governance, change management and process improvement.

ASI was founded 20 years ago by former Chip Mather, Ann Costello and the late Bob Welch.
