EOQ 2019 Winner:

April – June  – James Malony

For exceptional efforts for Quarter of April through June 2019, Jim has stepped up as our lead supporting NAVFAC. He has been excellent in communicating/avoiding any troubles on-site since the moment he took over as lead of the program. Jim is a strong advocate and truly cares about the team over there. He is consistently updating on the status of our employees and always has their best interests as well as those of the company in mind. We look forward to exceeding expectations for the Navy and couldn’t do this without Jim’s leadership.   His exceptional performance during this period is a credit to Knight Federal Solutions and the NavyTech Support Team.
