GMP is celebrating 20 years in business this year and to mark the occasion we’re sharing a brief history of our company.

GMP was founded in 1999 by Joe Austin and Bill Sullivan as a Government Business Development firm serving technology companies. Four years later, GMP was awarded an IT 70 GSA Schedule offering our partners a contracting vehicle to do business with the Government. In 2008, GMP successfully acquired their CVE verified SDVOSB status offering our partners a competitive advantage especially in the VA and DOD markets.

In 2015, Gregory Grazdan acquired GMP and relocated the company to Wimberley, TX. Since this acquisition and via an aggressive growth strategy, GMP has added a GSA Schedule 84: Security & Tactical contract and a VA FSS 65IIA: Medical Equipment & Supplies contract to our list of contracting vehicles. We have also grown from three employees to a team of sixteen talented individuals located across the country and all dedicated to GMP’s mission.

The aggressive growth strategy set forth in 2015 has helped GMP with many achievements, including earning a place on the Inc. 5000 list of fastest-growing privately held small companies in the U.S. in 2012, 2017 and 2019. We have also been awarded several large contracts for the VA, DHA, and EPA which are listed below.·    

  • VISN 1 Vocera BPA (2018) #36C24118A0037

  • VISN 22 Vocera BPA(2017) #VA262-17-A-0073

  • Vocera SATOC (2018) #W912DY18D0024

  • Agile EPA IDIQ Contract (2017) #EP-C-18-001

Over the past 20 years, GMP has been able to form partnerships with over 50 companies and has successfully managed over $200+ million in government contracts.  We have also been able to grow our revenue by 200% since we were acquired in 2015, which can be credited to our outstanding partners and government customers.

We could not have achieved this growth without our partners from the IT, Medical and Security/Tactical industries. We appreciate each of our partners and the innovative solutions they provide to our Government customers. GMP looks forward to what the next 20 years will bring!
