Booz Allen Hamilton has been at the forefront of strategy and technology consulting for nearly a century. Today, the firm is a major provider of professional services primarily to U.S. government agencies in Hawaii and around the globe in the defense, intelligence and civil sectors, as well as to corporations, institutions and not-for-profit organizations. Booz Allen offers services spanning strategy and organization, technology, operations and analytics - which it combines with specialized expertise to help solve our state’s and our nation’s toughest problems.
“While embracing the future, we’re convinced that our past - our management consulting heritage and legacy of client service - sets us apart,” says Ralph Shrader, Booz Allen’s chairman and CEO. “We don’t have customers, we serve clients. This is a key distinction for us. We look beyond the requirements of a single contract to address the broader context of our client’s mission.”
The firm’s unique culture and operating structure allows Booz Allen to anticipate needs and opportunities, rapidly deploy talent and deliver results. A problem-solving approach, deep technical knowledge and strong execution are Booz Allen trademarks, and have helped clients around the globe achieve success in their most critical missions. Many of the firm’s client relationships span decades. Booz Allen helps shape thinking and prepare for future developments in areas of high national importance, including cybersecurity, home-land security, health care and information technology.
Headquartered in McLean, Va., Booz Allen employs more than 25,000 people, and has annual revenues of more than $5 billion. More than 300 people are employed here in Hawaii. Fortune has named Booz Allen one of its “100 Best Companies to Work For” for six consecutive years. Working Mother has ranked the firm among its “100 Best Companies for Working Mothers” annually since 1999. With more than 300 people employed in Hawaii, Booz Allen has become woven into the business fabric of the Islands. The firm is proud to be an active member of the Chamber of Commerce of Hawaii, and many of its employees volunteer in a wide range of civic and non-profit organizations and functions. For example, colleagues in Hawaii are active Rotarians, lead Habitat for Humanity projects, support our Hawaii Public Radio Fund drives and assist the APEC 2011 Hawaii Host Committee.
