Client Testimonials:

ESI logo

“GENEDGE has been a strategic partner in ESI’s growth and development since 2008. Quickly differentiated from ‘traditional’ consultants with cookie cutter approaches, the GENEDGE team continues to deliver real bottom line impact. Initially GENEDGE was called upon to help us leverage years of innovation to hone and hyper-focus our business model, value proposition and right-fit customer. GENEDGE has since worked with ESI through strategic planning, marketing, manufacturing scaling, business process and product development. In all my years as an entrepreneur and prior years in ‘top-5’ corporate America, you won’t find a more effective, value driven partner for your business.”

– Alexander C. Marcus, President & CEO, ESI Total Fuel Management, Ashburn, Va.

Tiber Creek Consulting logo

“Tiber Creek Consulting has worked with GENEDGE on multiple initiatives including a partnership in helping us better understand, assess, and implement the DOD DFARS 252.204-7012 regulation and its requirements to comply with the NIST SP800-171r1 standard. GENEDGE’s support of the Virginia Small Business Defense contractor landscape will ensure these businesses can continue to do business with the DOD. GENEDGE has also helped our organization identify and explore additional synergies within our state such as collaborating with the BRCC’s GoVirginia Cyber Grant Program to train in cybersecurity and provide employment opportunities to program graduates within the Shenandoah Valley region. Our partnership with GENEDGE has directly increased overall revenue, assisted in our go-to market strategy for our software solution, and provided a supply of qualified cybersecurity experts for our organization and clients.”

– Asfand Ozzie Saeed, Director of Cyber Operations, Tiber Creek Consulting, Fairfax, Va.
