Dayton Business Journal Interviews New MacAulay-Brown CEO, Sid Fuchs

As the new president and CEO of the Dayton area’s largest locally-based defense contractor, Fuchs’ vision is bold: Grow company revenue to a $1 billion a year within five years and more than double the current workforce.  The recipe includes a combination of acquisitions as well as aggressively going after the market. “You’ve got to set big goals to move in the right direction,” said Fuchs, who started the new job on Aug. 1st. With about 500 Dayton-area workers and nearly 2,000 workers across the country, Beavercreek-based MacAulay-Brown currently does about $350 million a year in business. It provides engineering, technical and management services for the U.S. Air Force, Department of Defense, intelligence community and other government agencies. Fuchs, a former CIA officer, has a successful industry track record.  Among his stops, Fuchs served as president and CEO of TASC Inc., a Northrop Grumman subsidiary. Under his leadership, revenue at TASC grew from $450 million to more than $1.2 billion. Fuchs also led OAO Technology Solutions, where he significantly boosted revenue. His efforts at OAO led that company to be sold to Platinum Equity in 2010. Fuchs, 50, replaces Charlie Schwegman, who retired from the top spot at MacAulay-Brown after more than 14 years and is staying on as a senior advisor to the company.
