Oxnard, CA, January 3, 2020. Quality Innovative Solutions, Inc.® (QI-Solutions®) announced today the retirement of Co-Founder Bobby Mullins as President/CEO and majority owner. Mr. Mullins has been instrumental in leading the company since its’ opening in 2004. Through his leadership, QI-Solutions® has increased our initial customer base from two technical codes at Naval Surface Warfare Center (NSWC) Port Hueneme Division (PHD) to numerous codes across the command that includes Corporate Operations, Engineering and Test Office, Air Dominance Department, and Ship Defense & Expeditionary Warfare Department. During the companies 15 ½ years, new relationships and contracts were established with the Naval Sea Systems Command (NAVSEA), NSWC Corona Division Fallbrook Detachment, Naval Undersea Warfare Center (NUWC) Division Keyport, AEGIS Technical Representative, Naval Air Warfare Center Aircraft Division (NAWCAD), and the Department of Veterans Affairs. We are extremely grateful for Mr. Mullins’ contributions and commitment in building a solid foundation. We wish him fair winds and following seas as he moves into this new chapter of his life.
This New Year brings an exciting time of transformation for QI-Solutions®. Vice President/CFO and co-founder Carl Seastrand has assumed the role of President/CEO and majority shareholder as of January 1, 2020. Mr. Seastrand and Mr. Mullins met in 1997 and spent many days at sea supporting test & evaluation events of the Cooperative Engagement Capability (CEC), Advanced Combat Direction System (ACDS) and the Ship Self-Defense System (SSDS) systems. They both shared a common dream, to start a company where they could offer the customer outstanding performance for a fair price. That dream was realized less than 15 years later.
Mr. Seastrand is a U.S. Navy veteran with 39 years of shipboard Combat Systems and Naval operational knowledge and experience. He has served as the Chief Financial Officer and Security Officer since the company started and was responsible for establishing a Government accredited financial system and compliant security program. As he steps into this new role, his wealth of knowledge, not only about the support services QI-Solutions® provides, but also Government contracting will serve him well in leading the company into the future.
As QI-Solutions® embarks on this New Year of change and transformation, the company relocated to 5777 Olivas Park Drive, Suite A, Ventura CA 93003. Its’ Virginia Beach, VA Field Office location will remain at 440 Viking Drive, Suite 100, Virginia Beach, CA 23452.
QI-Solutions® will remain a Service-Disabled Veteran Owned Small Business (SDVOSB) and is committed to providing exceptional engineering and technical/professional services to support the mission of our Warfighters.
