MARYVILLE, TN (September 16, 2010) – RELYANT, LLC, a Maryville-based company providing worldwide strategic support services, has hired Jack M. MacRae as its Chief Financial Officer and Vice President, Risk & Administrative Services.

Mr. Macrae joins RELYANT from Safety and Ecology Corporation where he participated as a member of the company’s executive team since 1996.  His diverse and increasing responsibilities within the company paralleled the organization’s rapid growth, domestically and internationally.  His roles ranged from general counsel, management of corporate operations, and an assignment abroad as the managing director of the company’s UK subsidiary.  His tenure concluded with responsibilities as chief financial officer and management of international operations.

Prior to SEC, MacRae was a practicing attorney with nationally and regionally recognized law firms.  He started his career as a field artillery officer with the US Army.  Mr. MacRae holds a B.A. in Political Science from Miami University (Ohio), and a MBA and JD from the University of Tennessee.

At RELYANT, MacRae’s responsibilities will include development of capitalization strategies to support the company’s accelerating growth, as well as refinement of financial systems and operational controls. He will report to CEO and President Eric W. Barton.

“Jack gives us more than 20 years of practical experience designing financial and overall business strategies that produce results,” said Eric W. Barton, CEO and President of RELYANT. “His U.S. Army background and deep knowledge of the government contracting landscape will be valuable to RELYANT as we grow our overseas business units and continue our introduction to the domestic market.”

Since June, RELYANT has won several major contracts and contract extensions, including a $49 million demining and UXO contract, a $7 million expansion to its spray foam insulation task order for forward operating bases in Afghanistan, and an expansion to its vehicle maintenance contract in Iraq. In late August, the company announced award of a task order for the movement and transportation of equipment in Afghanistan.

RELYANT AWARDED SECURE MOVEMENT & TRANSPORTATION TASK ORDER

Posted on September 1, 2010 with No Comments

MARYVILLE, TN – RELYANT, LLC, a Maryville-based company providing worldwide strategic support services, has been awarded a task order for movement and transportation of equipment throughout Afghanistan.  This allows RELYANT to move their own goods and equipment to locations where they operate.

RELYANT currently moves construction materials, spray foam, and de-mining equipment around Afghanistan with our local national transportation and security partner. RELYANT has demonstrated success in moving equipment in a low profile manner when feasible to mitigate the risk of terrorist attack on our supply chain. This has greatly reduced the losses to our materials and supplies. RELYANT can also perform standard convoy operations which can move any product around country with minimal losses. Losses sustained by other companies are much higher than RELYANT’s with our current partners. The company uses a tiered approach to movements, based on daily threat analysis done by our security management staff that has more than 20 years of combined experience in high-threat environments.

Our local partners are vetted and experienced in movement of materials around Afghanistan.  They currently conduct more than 200 convoys per month to all parts of the country.  They have experienced, well trained, and well equipped convoy teams with knowledge of the terrain and roads for which they travel on a daily basis.  Our partners have been used by the Department of Defense and other Government agencies to conduct missions in very short time frames when needed by the client.
