"This new structure affords Fedcap the ability to both deepen our domain expertise in key areas of service, namely, Economic Development, Workforce Development, Occupational Health and Education, and to utilize our geographic presence to broaden the reach of our entire organization. It is an important next step in our national and emerging international mission-driven expansion," said Mark O’Donoghue, Chair of The Fedcap Group Board of Directors.
