SCRA Holds Strategic Advisory Group Meeting
SCRA, a global leader in applied research and commercialization, held its fall Strategic Advisory Group (SAG) meeting at its Applied Research Center in North Charleston, SC last week. The group, formed in 2010, is comprised of critical business development allies who advise and assist SCRA in the execution of the Company's market and business development programs.
SAG members represent various SCRA client constituencies, including government, industry and investment sectors. Retired US military flag officers, senior government executives and technology industry leaders form the group, including notables such as General Barry McCaffrey, Ambassador David Wilkins and former SC Governor Jim Hodges.
“Last week's meeting was extremely beneficial,” said SCRA CEO Bill Mahoney. “The SAG members are key resources in creating and closing business cycles, and we are very gratified at their affiliation and support. Our SAG program is a primary reason why we secured record year-ending backlog at the conclusion of FY12. We are excited to start new strategic initiatives and execute successful business development pursuits that enhance our capability to further South Carolina's Knowledge Economy.”
