New Brand Identity & Website Launch!

WASHINGTON, Sept. 15, 2020 /PRNewswire/ — The PDS Consulting Solutions team has been hard at work reimagining the look and feel of our logo and website to reflect how we’ve grown and changed!

PDS was founded by CEO, Kenneth Parsons & Co-Founder-Executive Member, Laura Davis with core services offerings exclusively in Deltek Costpoint Implementations, AWS GovCloud ITAR Space Hosting & DCAA Compliance. PDS has grown into broader relationships within the GovCon industry specifically in Aerospace & Defense where changes in government requirements & compliance simultaneously led to a push driven by digital transformation as a means to capture data through interactive visualizations and business intelligence without compromising security.

PDS quickly adapted to the new innovative challenges. Our dedication to our customers is demonstrated in our outstanding record of project success which has expanded to include:

  • Consulting in Aerospace & Defense Advanced Manufacturing & Materials Management
  • Mission Critical Business Intelligence and Reporting
  • Secure Cloud Hosting
  • Real time labor available with Kronos Shop Floor Time
  • Manufacturing Execution with iBASEt Solumina

Jesse Kepner, a 17 year veteran of aerospace and defense manufacturing supply chain leadership, has joined PDS Consulting Solutions, LLC. Jesse will bring his extensive knowledge and expertise to PDS as we expand our Materials and Advanced Manufacturing practice in 2022.

Jesse will lead our team of consultants across the government contracting community in delivery of Costpoint assessments of current use of materials management, manufacturing and supply chain tools; development of actionable project plans for improvement; redress of manufacturing organizational challenges as well as rationalization of applications. In the coming months Jesse will deliver webinars on various topics related to Costpoint Materials Management, Manufacturing and Advanced Manufacturing as well as short videos on best practices across a variety of applications within Costpoint. 

Jesse began his career at ATK in design engineering, rapidly growing into a Sr. Supply Chain Leadership role. He played critical roles in major Costpoint implementations and is a respected member of the Costpoint community, including presenting at numerous Insight conferences. He regularly is sought out as a business systems & processes advisor to executive leadership, including helping the team to navigate the business systems/processes integration that was necessary when merging with Orbital Sciences in 2016 and later through their acquisition by Northrop Grumman. Throughout his career Jesse has led teams that played critical roles in division specific and broader company success.

Most recently, Jesse was responsible for all Supply Chain Management for the NGAS Dayton Site & 3 offsite locations.  This role required oversight and management of strategic sourcing, procurement and subcontracting, Master scheduling, material & production planning, logistics/stores, government property and production control.

Jesse will bring a “real life” understanding of aerospace and defense manufacturing to our clients and will deliver unparalleled value to their businesses. Jesse holds a BS in Electrical Engineering, an MBA with a concentration in Project Management, and his APICS CSCP Certification. 

Kenneth Parsons, Co-Founder and CEO said PDS is both proud and excited to have Mr. Kepner join our team and we look forward to our practice expansion under his leadership.
