Milestones & History

 

Planate Management Group was founded in November of 2007 in Alexandria, Virginia by Chris Decker. Mr. Decker was later joined by Jonathan Larson in April 2008. Planate’s start leveraged their professional and personal experiences, knowledge of most-efficient organization processes, and awareness of Federal Market challenges to provide tailored, effective, and timely solutions to our customers.

 

As Patriots, they feel a duty and connection with their clients in completing the mission with a 'One Team' approach. The term Planate represents "not being geographically constrained" and is defined as "to make flat or two dimensional". Our corporate approach is modeled in this manner to provide direct support to our clients, without unnecessary levels of bureaucracy, allowing us to speed our service and solution delivery to our clients for their most important mission priorities. We pride ourselves in our integrity, agility, and professionalism in delivery solutions at the right time, right place, and right cost despite perceived limitations.

 

Planate has successfully navigated the Federal Market space, whether it be through global recessions, Sequestration, or client reorganizations. We have done so through sound management practices, a committed workforce, and proven high quality service delivery. We have grown our firm in alignment with, and developed capabilities to respond to, our clients' needs. This methodical growth and approach has enabled us to successfully respond to change and sustain our quality service delivery now and well into the future.

 

Planate has integrated with our clients' teams, local markets, and processes to ensure we have a 'finger on the pulse' of operations and have full visibility/appreciation of our service delivery. This is a reflection of our investment in our clients' mission/operations, understanding of the space we operate, and our responsiveness to our customers' needs.
