ManTech CEO Matt Tait says their new owners in the Carlyle Group have told them this: ManTech needs to be ManTech to succeed in today's market. He tells editor Nick Wakeman what that means in this episode.

Much has changed at ManTech over recent months, namely a new owner and new chief executive. The company is now privately-held after 20 years as a public company.

But there is also stability with the transition to new CEO Matt Tait, formerly its chief operating officer. Tait shares his priorities with editor Nick Wakeman in this episode along with the marching orders he has from The Carlyle Group, the private equity group that acquired ManTech.

Put simply, Carlyle wants ManTech to be ManTech. That means focusing on the national security missions of its customers and delivering innovation. In turn, Tait’s focus is on the company’s people and differentiation from competitors.

He sees plenty of opportunities ahead for the company, both organically and with acquisitions.
