Since Red Team Consulting’s founding, the company has helped more than 600 small and large businesses compete on more than 800 procurements. “We believe in providing the ‘right’ type of support to help our clients grow in the federal market,” says Jeff Shen, Red Team’s vice president. “When we don’t feel a client has a likely chance of winning a federal contract, we advise them to walk away and save their money. In the long run, this helps our clients save money and learn how to make more efficient bid decisions on their own.”
Words of Wisdom: “Work harder than your competitors and learn how to develop longer-lasting relationships.”
Based on staff feedback, Red Team decided to re-structure in August 2015, and several key employees transitioned into significantly new roles. “During this restructure, we asked our staff to examine what made them happy and how they envisioned themselves growing within the company,” says Shen. “Two staff members in particular created roles that were completely new to the company.”
Red Team hosts a semi-annual charity golf tournament. For this tournament, the whole team comes together to research charities in the local community, and then votes on which one should receive support. Some of the charities past tournaments have supported include Hope for Henry, Luke’s Wings and The Children’s Science Center. All proceeds from the tournament are given to the charity.
