Jay started his career as a software engineer and soon became a leader of software teams. He was always fascinated with what makes a business tick though and gravitated towards that passion. He was a founder of Intelligent Software Solutions (ISS) in 1998. As CEO, Jay helped grow ISS into a thriving mid-sized Federal technology provider. In 2016, with help from a highly successful private equity group, he brought ISS together with several other small but special companies, to form Polaris Alpha where he served as President. Polaris Alpha flourished and was quickly acquired by the Parsons company where it prospers today.
