WASHINGTON, DC – Avascent Partner Doug Berenson will present his outlook for the federal services markets at the Professional Services Council’s Spring Conference, “Marketview 2012” to be held in Scottsdale, Arizona on March 18-20, 2012.
“This is a period of tremendous uncertainty across the Department of Defense, with budgetary pressures, the political calendar, and pivotal moments in our overseas commitments all converging,” Doug commented. “Players at every level of the services sector have to be recalibrating their strategies to work through the downturn and position themselves for tomorrow’s growth opportunities,” he continued.
With the threat of further, drastic defense cuts as a result of sequestration looming, Doug nevertheless sees opportunities for companies that are able to rapidly adjust to changing customer priorities. “Rising cost constraints and consolidation of contract vehicles will put added pressure on competitors. But those who can bring efficiencies to bear, and develop the right sales channels will see their market share grow,” he said.
Doug leads Avascent’s 050 budget analysis service as well as numerous defense sector consulting engagements for both corporate and private equity clients. In these engagements, Doug and the Avascent team develop detailed assessments of market growth and competitor market share in a variety of services markets.
