Private companies

SRA International

The government contractor, which offers systems engineering, consulting and technical services, had a year of change. The company was taken private under a $1.88 billion agreement with Providence Equity Partners, and then tapped William L. Ballhaus to take over from Stanton D. Sloane, SRA’s chief executive since 2007. Ballhaus, who led DynCorp International for two years, said going private means the company can now focus on long-term opportunities rather than short-term results.

Trivia

The company's NetOwl NameMatcher won a competition sponsored by Mitre to develop a system for matching multicultural names against watchlists and other screening databases.
