Joint Research and Development Acquires Global Systems Technologies

Joint Research and Development, LLC (JRAD), a leader in test & evaluation, research & development, and medical and health advisory services to the Federal Government has acquired Global Systems Technologies (GST). GST is a leading provider of test and evaluation services, model-based systems engineering, logistics, and research and development to the Departments of Defense and Homeland Security customers.

With this acquisition, GST becomes the third company in Broadtree Partners’ GovCon platform, joining Sayres and Associates (Sayres) and JRAD. Tim Reardon, current CEO of Sayre and JRAD, and prior Lockheed Martin and Leidos senior executive, will lead the combined companies as CEO. With long legacies of outstanding performance in the GovCon national security market, GST, JRAD and Sayres will now be working together with unified, mission-focused operational and financial leadership.

“We’re extremely excited to add GST to our GovCon platform – GST has a unique culture of customer and mission-focused performance and remarkably talented people supporting critical national security programs across the national security customer community,” says Reardon. “GST and JRAD will enable our customers to have greater access to mission-critical engineering domains to serve their most critical missions.” Terri Hague will lead as President of both JRAD and GST while also focusing on integration efforts across the Portfolio.

Jeffrey Megargel will lead as Chief Operating Officer (COO) of both organizations. Leveraging the expertise of over 450 staff supporting all branches of the US Military, the portfolio companies will provide our clients with exceptional support across all mission areas.
