BEST DEALMAKER Buyer: Six3 Systems

Targets: Harding Security Associates and BIT Systems

Why: A year ago, Six3 Systems didn’t exist. But private equity firm GTCR lured Bob Coleman away from ManTech International, where he was chief operating officer, to be chief executive officer, and Six3 went from start-up to closing two deals in less than a year.

The deals have come in the intelligence space, and those companies tend to get a lot of attention from buyers.

GTCR is a private equity firm experienced and successful in the government market, having backed DigitalNet Inc. earlier in this decade.
