KippsDeSanto & Co. Advises Titania Solutions Group, Inc. on its Sale to Swish Data Corporation
KippsDeSanto & Co. is pleased to announce the sale of Titania Solutions Group, Inc. (“Titania” or the “Company”) to Swish Data Corporation.
Headquartered in Warrenton, VA, Titania has served as a leading provider of enterprise solutions, program management, information technology, and systems integration services for over eight years to high-profile Federal customers within the US Army, US Navy, Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (“CMS”), Federal Aviation Administration (“FAA”), and National Institutes of Health (“NIH”), amongst others. The Company has positioned itself as a leading technology partner with established customer relationships, strong technical talent, and differentiated market knowledge serving as a trusted partner for its customers. The Company boasts a substantial legacy providing mission-oriented military intelligence training on several substantial programs; thought leadership associated with rapidly evolving rules, policy, and laws related to public and civil operation of unmanned aircraft systems (“UAS”); and technical knowledge in critical applications of DevSecOps and Agile methodologies for government healthcare organizations. Titania’s core capabilities and solutions are focused in the areas of cybersecurity, enterprise solutions, test and evaluation, program management support and data management, operational intelligence and training, healthcare information technology, and information technology governance, in each case with a unique perspective on delivering market-informed insights to key decision makers.
Titania’s impressive suite of engineering services capabilities is delivered by a team of subject matter experts with proven experience in uniform, government service, and leading engineering organizations. This unique multi-faceted perspective and skillset is leveraged for the sole purpose of delivering excellent support to clients with complex and evolving challenges, often at the forefront of long-term market opportunities. Combined with a robust portfolio of relevant contract vehicles, including SPARC, CIO SP3, eFAST, MOBIS, and SeaPort NxG, the Company is strongly positioned to continue its growth trajectory as part of its new partnership with Swish Data Corporation.
We believe this transaction demonstrates several key trends in the government technology M&A environment:
- Continued demand for thought leadership and subject matter expertise in the areas of enterprise solutions, engineering expertise, and program management to solve complex and long-term challenges for mission-critical programs within federal agencies
- Buyer interest in acquiring organizations with a strong pedigree and deep domain knowledge in specialized areas of expertise supporting long-term and highly-visible programs
- Buyer focus on strategic alignment with high-priority, forward-looking, and enduring mission areas (e.g., UAS policy and implementation within the FAA)

December 1, 2020
Expanding Swish’s capabilities into DevSecOps, the Intelligence Community and Unmanned Aerial Vehicles
MCLEAN, Va. – Today, Swish Data Corporation (Swish), a provider of technology solutions and engineering services, announced that the company has acquired Titania Solutions Group, Inc. (Titania) as part of an on-going five-year growth and expansion strategy.
Titania is a successful professional services firm with over 100 employees performing mission-critical services for the U.S. Army, FAA, HHS, DISA and other federal organizations. The acquisition of Titania expands Swish’s expertise to include DevSecOps services, intelligence training and operations, and drone and counter-drone activities within the public sector market. This acquisition also brings important technology capabilities, contract vehicles, and valuable customer relationships that further diversify Swish’s government contractor business.
During 2020, Swish continued its impressive organic growth, augmented by the acquisition of MAD Security LLC in 2019, and now by the acquisition of Titania. “This acquisition further diversifies Swish’s market reach and capabilities, with a company that has a proven track record of success and superior performance,” stated Monty Deel, chief executive officer for Swish.
Jodi Johnson, founder and former chief executive officer for Titania, commented, “I could not be more proud of the company we have built and I’m very happy to find a like-minded company in Swish that will continue to nurture our employees and create opportunities to excel, all the while providing valuable, mission-critical services to our country.”
Titania will be operated as an independent business subsidiary of Swish. John Hibbert, the previous chief operating officer for Titania, will serve as general manager. “It’s an honor to be joining forces with Swish,” John stated. “The combined team has substantially greater capabilities than either company has alone and will result in a compelling value proposition for our employees, customers, and partners. This is an exciting time for Titania.”
