CEO MESSAGE: A Word from Joe Carlini

Welcome to McKean Defense.

When we opened our doors in 2006, our desire was to blend the best of what we had experienced in larger companies, with the service and dedication we knew a smaller firm could provide. Experience creates a strong foundation, and the company was built on a management team with hundreds of years of experience in the industry. We incorporated an entrepreneurial spirit, creativity, and flexibility with a goal to establish a workplace that allowed those traits to be channeled into great work for our customers. At McKean Defense, we roll up our sleeves and work alongside our customers. We reinforce ownership in the work we do, which empowers our staff to make suggestions, feel committed, and advance the “big ideas.” At the end of the day, we all have a stake in the work we do. That philosophy is now an actual reality, given our recent transition to an Employee Owned Company.

We work to strike a balance between a dedicated, highly motivated workforce, and the spirit and energy upon which McKean Defense was established. Our employees tell us that this is a different kind of company – where they feel supported and challenged. I am extremely proud that we are able to provide a workplace that lives up to our core values of commitment to our customer’s mission, transformative thinking, and a culture based on teamwork and respect.

McKean Defense is a company committed to supporting customers that value our deep technical credentials, creativity, and entrepreneurship. I hope you will consider being part of our tomorrow.
