President and CEO
CONTRACTOR OF CHOICE
Cyber Cloud Technologies, LLC is a service-disabled veteran-owned small business, as well as a growing technology firm with expertise in several areas. “Our growth has stemmed from hiring technically savvy, motivated employees with a deep understanding of our customer’s mission and a compelling desire to continuously learn and grow,” says Frank J. Kippenbrock, president and CEO of Cyber Cloud. “Having a strong workforce has allowed us to leverage our position within the federal market space, and to become the contractor of choice for the government and large [Department of Defense] integrators.”
Quick Tip: “A great leader is one who leads from the front, takes responsibility for his actions as well as those of his team, and shares the credit.”
In leading Cyber Cloud, Kippenbrock says the most important lesson has been to “have patience and faith in our abilities. There are many factors in the federal contracting space that companies cannot control, such as the continual shift of government funding and priorities. I learned to prioritize my opportunity pipeline and workflow to maximize where and how we expend our energy.” The company’s five-year plan includes continued growth on newly awarded contracts. “We are also positioning ourselves to prime several upcoming contracts,” says Kippenbrock.
