This past week was an exciting time for FTI as we opened our newest office location in Huntsville, Alabama.  We are privileged to be a part of the Huntsville community as we continue to grow our business

On Wednesday 2/23/2022, FTI held a Grand Opening with a Ribbon Cutting Ceremony at the newly completed office located at 8000 Rideout Road SW, Huntsville, AL 35808 facility.

Ceremony speakers included:

  • Ron Shroder, FTI Chairman/CEO
  • Dr. Jody Avooske, Deputy Director, Cyber Warfare, OUSD(A&S)
  • Mayor Tommy Battle
  • Dale Strong, Chairman Madison County Commission
  • Greg Brown, Huntsville / Madison Chamber of Commerce
  • Jim Rogers, Lockheed Martin, and FTI Board member

The ceremony highlighted FTI’s investment in the Huntsville market, our customer’s cyber mission, and our mutual proud service of keeping the warfighter safe.

FTI’s journey began in Huntsville where our founder Lavon F. Jordan was raised and eventually inducted into Alabama’s Engineering Hall of Fame. The innovation and entrepreneurial spirit of FTI is clearly present in our Huntsville employees which was celebrated last week in Huntsville. As FTI’s CEO Ron Shroder highlighted: “Today is about Huntsville and the future for FTI will continue to be deeply involved with Huntsville.”

Following the Ceremony and the Ribbon Cutting supported by the Huntsville Chamber of Commerce, over 100 attendees enjoyed a reception highlighting food from the various states where FTI has offices including Alabama, California, Colorado, Virginia, Massachusetts, and Ohio.  (see our locations here)

Here at FTI, one of our cultural foundations is Charity, called our 4th C. During this Holiday Season, we took some time to appreciate and give back to the communities around us as we sought to love our neighbors in this our annual Season of Giving.

Our employees across the nation got together to support various charities and give their personal resources and time to make a difference and to actively demonstrate one of our chore values…charity.  FTI functions and believes in the value of giving back to our local communities.

FTI and its employees were able to sponsor and support ten different charities in the regions neighboring our offices.  From helping those in need to assisting our veterans, to helping children’s outreaches we were able to raise and gift over $40,000 in support.  We count it as a great honor and blessing to be able to reach into our local communities, as we look to more ways to give back in 2022.

Early this year, FTI received the exciting news that we have been nominated and qualified to be a part of the 2020 Dayton Business Journals Best Place to Work.  This year’s event was held virtually on Thursday, August 6th at 12:00 PM EST.  FTI had several individuals attend this event in support of the DBJ and for the representation of FTI.  Last year, FTI was nominated in the BPTW work awards and won in the category of being a Community Supporter.   This was such an honor for FTI to receive this award last year.  Our values as a company are Core Values, Commitment, Compassion, and Charity; and last year’s awards showed our values are in action.

This year it was a double honor to be nominated for the event again. We want to say congrats to all the nominees and winners who were a part of the awards show yesterday!  FTI’s success and nomination are directly related to our great employees who truly make FTI one of the Best Places to Work.
