Kay Kapoor is embarking on a new chapter in her professional life.
The former head of AT&T’s Public Sector business is launching a new government technology and consulting business named Arya Technologies, a small, woman-owned company that will provide end-to-end technology solutions for the government space.
“Arya Technologies is created for one purpose: helping government agencies achieve their missions with meaningful, innovative and fiscally-responsible solutions,” founder and CEO Kapoor said.
Kapoor most recently led AT&T’s $15 billion Global Public Sector organization. She previously served as CEO of Accenture Federal Services and held executive positions at Lockheed Martin Corp. Under her leadership, her teams snagged several high-profile contracts, including recent wins of FirstNet, the first nationwide broadband network dedicated to public safety; a spot on the General Services Administration’s $50 billion EIS contract; and the National Security Agency’s Greenway RIS I.
A well-known and respected name in the GovCon industry, Kapoor has won numerous company and industry awards, including the 2016 Stevie Awards for Women in Business, a Fed 100 in 2015 and the 2014 ACT-IAC’s Janice K. Mendenhall Spirit of Leadership Award. She also made WashingtonExec‘s 2017 Top 25 GovCon Execs to Watch list.

Congratulations Kay. I wondered where you ended up. Best wishes for success in your new venture. I’m still here in El Segundo. The Western Range CDR was approved and our prime, DCCA, is ordering millions of dollars of equipment through AT&T. Sure took along time. LOL.
Anyway, congrats again!
