McLean defense contractor announces brand name change
E3/Sentinel rebrands to Avantus Federal
McLean-based defense contractor E3/Sentinel LLC announced Monday it will operate under a new brand name, Avantus Federal.
“This is a significant milestone for our organization and highlights our capabilities, our growth and our commitment to both our clients and our employees,” Avantus Federal CEO Andy Maner said in a statement. “Our unification to Avantus Federal is about much more than simply refreshing our logo, website and colors. It’s about fully expressing all that inspires us and communicating our unique vision to our customers today and tomorrow.”
Avantus had operated as E3/Sentinel since 2018, following the merger of E3 Federal Solutions and The Sentinel Co. The company offers data engineering, advanced analytics and software development services to the U.S. Department of Homeland Security, U.S. Department of Defense and the U.S. Intelligence Community.
“The Avantus brand symbolizes our continuous growth and innovation,” Avantus Federal Chief Growth Officer Chris Blahm said in a statement. “The name ‘Avantus’ — which signals both ‘advantage’ and ‘vantage point’ — reflects our hyper-focused, outcome-oriented business where our employees are part of everything we do.”
The rebrand includes a new name, logo, website, mission statement and company values, according to a company statement. Owned by NewSpring Holdings, the company first announced in June it would rebrand its platform later in 2020.
