Our Leadership Team

Girish K. Jindia

President & CEO



Girish Jindia is a visionary business leader with more than 35 years of executive experience in the professional services, systems integration, and IT base solutions.  In that time, Girish, along with his mentor and longtime business partner, Robert E. LaRose, has been an integral part of the evolution of the government professional services industry.  Girish co-founded an entrepreneurial and dynamic firm, Advanced Technology, Inc., that spawned the careers of several high-profile senior executives in our industry.

After the strategic acquisition of Advanced Technology, Inc. by a Fortune 100 company, Girish again co-founded, with Robert LaRose, Integic Corp., a firm on the forefront of healthcare IT and records management, which was also acquired as a strategic acquisition by one of the top 5 federal contractors.  Many of the relationships formed over this period endure today.

Girish started Aveshka, Inc. in early 2010, focusing on national security and infrastructure protection.  Early on, the company acquired the Civitas Group's Government Services Practice, allowing Aveshka to provide full cycle services from policy to strategy to implementation.  Girish follows the same philosophy as before – surrounding himself with the most knowledgeable and experienced professional team, which has led to the development of the company’s analytic platform, CandorTM.  Aveshka focuses on delivering value and solving critical customer challenges through business development and financial management, contract management and continuous customer interaction to ensure success for all parties.
