We look forward to continuing our important work as a member of the KGS team,” said Robin Wright, President & CEO, Tapestry Solutions.

“Our team combines the best of Tapestry’s deep domain experience – and years of success supporting USTRANSCOM programs – with the KGS team’s diverse IT technologies and services.”
