Bluestone Investment Partners, a McLean, Virginia-based private equity firm focused on investing in the defense and government technology sector, today announced a partnership with seasoned government technology leaders, George Wilson and Tom Weston. Messrs. Wilson and Weston have extensive strategy, operational, and M&A experience, and proven records of value creation in the defense and government technology sector.

Together, the partnership will invest and grow a mission-critical technology provider for the Federal Government across civilian, defense, healthcare, and national security agencies. Their investment criteria prioritize federal technology providers with annual revenues surpassing $25 million, possessing an unrestricted contracting profile, and demonstrating alignment with federal digital modernization priorities.

Prior to ECS, Mr. Wilson was senior executive, Board member and one of the early employees of Stanley Associates. As a critical part of that team, Stanley grew from $2 million to $900 million in annual revenue before going public and later being acquired by CGI Inc. for $1 billion.

Tom Weston previously served as Chief Financial Officer at ECS Federal. During his tenure, he led financial operations and played a vital role in driving growth through a focused mergers and acquisitions program. Prior to ECS, Mr. Weston held CFO roles at Acentia LLC, Apogen Technologies, and BTG Inc.
