Crofton technology company Force 3 said Monday that founder and CEO Rocky Cintron is stepping down after two decades and will be replaced by the company's chief operating officer.
Les Trachtman, the company's new CEO, has served as COO since joining Force 3 in 2008. Cintron, who has run Force 3 since founding it in 1992, will become chairman of the board.
The company provides services in federal security, communications and medical imaging to federal agencies and private firms. Force 3 started out providing information technology services to government agencies and has grown to 300 employees.
Trachtman, who has three decades of entrepreneurial experience in the technology industry, has helped Force 3 improve its profit margin in core business areas, the company said. Trachtman had served as CEO of several companies, including Transcentive and e-OneHundred Group.
"As COO, Les has implemented game-changing processes," Cintron said. "He has been the driving force behind our leadership programs and the catalyst to change the mix of our business."
