August 24, 2021. FAIRFAX, Va. Client Solution Architects LLC (CSA) announced that Joe Kuhlmann was appointed as the incoming chief financial officer (CFO). He will be responsible for the financial strategy and operations of the company. This role comes after the company’s recent acquisition of Capstone LLC, a mid-tier defense contracting firm.

“Joe has extensive experience in strategic planning and long-range financial and business operations, M&A, and building and managing successful finance organizations,” said Amy Bleken, CSA’s chief executive officer. “CSA’s future strategy will require his expertise as we continue to expand, grow and penetrate new markets in the public space.”

He also led the initial public offering of Stanley, Inc. [NYSE: SXE], an information technology business now owned by CGI Federal.
“CSA is at a pivotal place as an emerging large business, particularly after the acquisition of Capstone LLC,” said Kuhlman. “My experience in helping to grow multiple mid-size firms into competitive large businesses, I can vow that CSA’s expansive capabilities and experienced leadership team is perfectly aligned to deliver mission centric and digital transformation services to the federal government—including bringing new innovative solutioning into the hands of our current and new clients.”
