SGIS CEO Hany Girgis founded the company from his garage in June 2002. He knew the company would compete with large, well-established competitors and identified the opportunity to compete as a small business.

This transitioned SGIS from a small start-up to a multi-million dollar company poised to compete with other medium and large-sized defense contractors.
