Torch.AI announced today that Eric McGrane has joined the executive team as the firm’s new National Security Sector Lead.  Since the award of the U.S. Department of Defense National Background Investigation System, demands from the Federal marketplace have risen dramatically.  McGrane’s role will be growth oriented with a mission to mature specialized federal offerings and further enhance the partner ecosystem.

“Eric is one of those special humans.  I’m so very excited for our clients to be able to enjoy Eric’s wisdom, passion and unique problem solving skills.  Torch.AI is a very mission focused firm and Eric is ideally suited to help propel the company forward as we focus on tackling tough problems for our country,” said Brian Weaver, founder and CEO.  “McGrane has already begun working closely with the team to identify strategic paths in order to meet the needs of a growing federal customer base.”

Before joining Torch.AI, Mr. McGrane served as Client Executive for Perspecta.  He was responsible for clients in the Intelligence Community and Department of Defense for the U.S. Public Sector, including the development of new solutioning as well as the orchestration and execution of the company’s strategic growth vision. Mr. McGrane brings more than 14 years of direct experience in the federal marketplace to Torch.AI.

“I wanted to be on team Torch after seeing the platform and the people bringing solutions to the federal government. The culture and the speed at which value is delivered is truly a discriminator in the market”, said Eric. “Torch solves problems for their clients at a speed I’ve never seen in the federal space.  It’s this immediate return on investment for our customers that excites me the most.”


Torch.AI is currently on a hiring spree, adding additional team members in both Kansas City and in a new Washington, D.C. office near Dupont Circle to better serve public sector clientele.
