We look forward to bringing Patriot’s name to the region and showcasing their capabilities along the way,” said Brandon Downs, COO of BBG. “I’m also personally grateful to have the opportunity to lead BBG into the future and continue to grow the firm as Jerry and Dino envisioned 27 years ago.”

BBG has extensive expertise within the government contractor and emerging business sectors given their proximity to the metro D.C. area.
