Third Coast Federal has been active in South Bend for over four years as a consultancy for local, small, entrepreneurial businesses wanting to break into the federal contracting and R&D space. Until a few weeks ago, the company consisted of two people — the president, Dave Temeles, and a client success manager, Clevon Brown. The addition of these four consultants, as well as a director of client engagement, and a PR function, is a significant leap in the company’s ability to create, discover and capture opportunities for local businesses. Greg Daniels, John Falvey and Rebecca Parker hail from AM General. Kathleen Rice Mosier has a long legal career behind her and teaches at the Notre Dame law school.

Through its consultancy capabilities and the use of its Federal Navigator tool, Third Coast Federal is helping local, small businesses with innovative and targeted technologies navigate the complicated federal government system and become visible to the Department of Defense, and other federal agencies. Third Coast federal is quickly racking up successes, taking companies with no knowledge of even where to begin the process, from “zero,” through to winning federal technology development contracts.

We are excited to share the news of our growth and what it means for our customers and the region.
