“At 211 degrees, water is hot. At 212 degrees, it boils. And with boiling water, comes steam… and with steam, you can power a train. One degree. Applying one extra degree of temperature to water means the difference between something that is simply very hot and something that generates enough force to power a machine.”
— Sam Parker | 212° The Extra Degree

The FedStar Team

Our award winning team of talented professionals come from diverse technical backgrounds to better meet your needs. Each has achieved decades of success and senior positions in areas such as academia, telecommunications, defense and aerospace, software and technology industries. Many have demonstrated the ability to teach and mentor government leaders at all levels and are members of professional organizations such as the Project Management Institute (PMI) and the International Council on Systems Engineering (INCOSE).

FedStar’s team is customer focused and has an impressive track record of achievement. FedStar holds “Gold Certification” status from the Customer Service Institute of America, which means our focus on customer service and the results we deliver are second to none.  FedStar impressively achieved Gold Certification on our first effort and improved on those already strong results during a recent recertification. Maintaining certification to International Customer Service Standards is part of our process of continual improvement and highlights the effectiveness of our corporate governance and risk management.


Our Core Values define the culture in which we work everyday. Our people are essential to our continued success and as we grow, our goal is to maintain that culture and evoke new talent. 

Inspired by Sam Parker author of 212: The Extra Degreewe realized that by paying closer attention to our people-their thoughts, ideas and the work they do-while making the effort to notice the little things, we have built a team of innovative thinkers, action oriented leaders and, most importantly, individuals who truly care about the work they are doing for our clients. FedStar recognizes that attitudes are contagious and ours is worth catching!
