jansKevin Jans

President
Skyway Acquisition Solutions

Kevin M. Jans is the President and Founder of Skyway Acquisition Solutions ("Skyway"). After 15 years as a Department of Defense contracting officer, he founded the company to help small to mid-size businesses navigate the increasingly complex process of competing for Federal contracts. Kevin built his company on the premise that no one knows the Federal acquisition system better than those contracting officers and buyers who managed it from the inside. Following that business model, he built a team of experts with ‘insider’ experience who have served as contracting officers. What separates Skyway from other government consulting companies is the insight that comes from having done the work as federal contracting officers.
