Washington, D.C. – JMA Solutions, a local Southwest (SW) D.C. based government consulting firm, celebrated 15 years in business this past December with an extravagant online event. Although JMA employees were not able to participate in person, the JMA Marketing Team found a means to develop a virtual event to celebrate this historic occasion.
To begin the evening, the JMA leadership welcomed its employees, customers, and community partners, including the Southwest Neighborhood Assembly (SWNA), the Air Traffic Control Association (ATCA) and many others who joined us in an evening of fun. Attendees enjoyed live entertainment from an illusionist, music from DJ Ease, virtual games, and raffles.
“2020 has been a challenging year,” said President and CEO Jan Adams. “Achieving 15 years of excellence is a major accomplishment and would not be possible without my forward-thinking team. That in itself deserves to be celebrated.”
JMA Solutions was founded by its President and CEO Jan Adams, a 24-year Air Force veteran, who started the company as a one-woman consultancy in 2005. Since then, Ms. Adams has grown the company into a successful award-winning engineering and management consulting firm that supports the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) and numerous other government clients. JMA Solutions has over 170 employees and operates all over the country including offices in Egg Harbor Township, New Jersey, Oklahoma City, OK, and a team located in Jacksonville, Florida. A large part of the success of the company can be attributed to the contribution of its hard-working staff, who continuously delivers excellent customer service and keeps JMA at the forefront of an ever-changing landscape.
In addition to being a force within the consulting management field, JMA Solutions has been recognized by many third-party organizations, including the Washington Business Journal, the DC Chamber of Commerce, and the Disabled American Veterans (DAV), for its commitment to serving the community. Since its founding, JMA has donated over 1.6 million dollars to various charities around the United States and over $350,000 to the SW D.C. community. The company is also a proud 6-year Adopt-a-School partner to Amidon-Bowen Elementary School and Jefferson Academy, both located in Southwest, D.C.
“Although JMA has had tremendous growth over the years, we have always stayed true to our roots – providing exceptional customer service and giving back to our communities to help foster the growth of the next generation of business leaders,” said Ms. Adams. “The act of giving starts from within and I am so grateful that I have a team that has that same passion for Giving Back.”
When asked what’s next for JMA, Ms. Adams mentioned that the company has plans to pursue more grant-based research opportunities that focus on commercial or academic potential.
