What’s one thing we should know that makes your company unique?

Nightwing may be a new name, but we’re no amateurs. Previously part of a leading Fortune 100 company, we became independent in 2024. When we formed Nightwing, we brought a deep set of credentials and an unfaltering commitment to the mission. For over four decades, our team has been providing some of the world’s most technically advanced full-spectrum cyber, data operations, systems integration and intelligence support services to the U.S. government on its most important missions.

What was the biggest obstacle you had to overcome in your business?

When transitioning from the military it’s an uphill sprint to learn. Its best to reflect on areas you succeeded in your past career and bring those with you into your next chapter.
