About Booz Allen Hamilton

With roots that can be traced back almost a century, Booz Allen Hamilton has carved its own place in the consulting industry as an indispensible advisor to the US federal government, particularly in administering IT strategy and integration to numerous agencies and departments.  One would be hard pressed to find an area of government where Booz Allen's reach is not felt in one capacity or another, be it through security projects and developments for the Department of Homeland Security, improving public alert and warning systems in conjunction with the FCC, creating the Federal Enterprise Architecture as a standard for budgetary management in federal offices, or the outright provision of systems intelligence support to the military and defense agencies.

Not your father's Booz Allen

The Booz Allen Hamilton of today looks a lot different than it did just a couple years ago.  The Virginia-based consulting firm once consisted of two very distinct businesses-one that advised government clients and one that worked with commercial companies.  A December 2007 email from CEO Ralph Shrader first informed employees that the firm's leadership was considering a separation of the two groups, a deal which soon materialized in early 2008; the commercial and international business spun off as the independent firm Booz & Company with Shumeet Banerji at the reins, while the U.S. government business retained the name Booz Allen Hamilton and Shrader as CEO.  To reinforce their independence from the commercial group, the firm then sold a $2.54 billion majority stake in itself to private equity giant The Carlyle Group.  The firm went public in November 2010, and the Carlyle Group remains a majority shareholder.
