Our Vision and Values
Federal Street Consulting strives to be the premier technical and management consulting firm by providing quality deliverables, within budget, while consistently focusing on presenting service disabled Veterans, Veterans and professional employment opportunities.
To simplify what we believe: our vision, and values can be seen every day in the caliber and commitment of the people we employ, in the quality and integrity of our business partnerships, and in the standards of excellence we demand of ourselves.
Our company’s vision is that we can “change the world” for our customer.
For our Veterans: We believe that through their military service, our Veterans have learned essential skills that many civilians in the business world may have difficulty translating into their business model. Service members learn marketable skills such as problem solving, critical thinking, project management, prioritization, logistics, and communications, in high stress, demanding environments with great success. These skills are taught to all ranks to enable completion of vital missions in spite of the absence of leadership in some of the most inhospitable and hostile environments in the world.
Unfortunately as a result of their assignments, some of our service men and women are wounded. Once physically rehabilitated, some of them face further challenges finding a suitable place of employment. As a SDVOSB we understand the unique, and often overlooked, capabilities that our service members have to offer and plan to capitalize on those skills.
For our Skilled Professionals: We strive to employ skilled professionals with the education, experience and capabilities to support the needs of our customers and who exemplify our core values. FSC provides a pathway to professional growth whenever possible promoting from within whenever possible providing training opportunities, and open communications for employees to share innovative ideas and improvements. All FSC employees are able to contribute to their own growth and success as well as that of the company.

CEO’s personal vision:
As the CEO of Federal Street Consulting, my personal vision is to be a shining beacon to the workplace by providing and expanding job opportunities to service-disabled Veterans and Veterans in the 21st century.
CEO’s personal mission:
We are a company believing that Veterans are prepared to serve their country in a different way once they leave military service, and my mission is to provide opportunities for Veterans who have learned valuable skills in service to our country.
It would be easy for FSC to “check a box” on a proposal for vets, disabled vets, SWaM, etc. but FSC is more than a classification or label. Those labels do not define who/what we are. We are much deeper and have much more to offer than a label. We are a company that believes in rebuilding pride, confidence, talent, and the willingness to succeed in someone who may no longer feel capable or they may even feel defeated. We believe that self-worth comes from within and only needs the opportunity to shine; that sometimes a guiding hand is needed from those of us who can guide. We believe in lifting up those that have been knocked down, not only showing them how to walk again but to run, to be more than they were before; in spite of their situation. We believe that ripple effect will be life changing for the individual and those around them.
America knows that today’s Veterans are highly skilled, well educated, easily trained, and willing to work hard. Our Veterans know what it means to be loyal, to dedicate themselves to a purpose and know exactly what teamwork is. They have a safety-conscious mentality, and have honed their leadership skills through experiences in a world that values leadership and teamwork.
