Description: Booz Allen Hamilton is an international management and technology consulting firm whose clients include major corporations and government agencies. The private company has more than 14,000 employees worldwide with offices on six continents and more than $2.5 billion in revenue for the latest fiscal year. In the Washington area, its consultants work on telecommunications, defense, information technology, health care, the environment and other topics.
Developments: On the eve of its 90th birthday, Booz Allen Hamilton grew both in revenue and staff in 2003. The federal government continues to be the firm's largest customer. The company produced a wide array of studies and reports in 2003. Among the findings: Forced turnover of chief executives has reached a record high; telecommunications firms are increasingly outsourcing their core business functions; and private/public partnerships are essential to fighting the AIDS epidemic in India. Booz Allen became a presence in the sports world in 2003: It took over the sponsorship of the Washington area PGA tournament once known as the Kemper Open, turning it into the Booz Allen Classic for at least the next three years. The event is held each year in the Washington area, and this year will be played at the Tournament Players Club at Avenel in Potomac June 24-27. In return for the naming rights, Booz Allen agreed to spend $6.5 million on the tournament over the next three years.
