Four partners. One vision.

We’re in this together.

Vision with action can change the world.

Wayne Willis envisioned building a company that would give everyone who was part of it a sense of mastery, autonomy, and purpose. In 2005, he set out to do it. He started small, with four employees and one contract, and a guiding belief that good government could change the world for the better. As HWC has grown, we’ve maintained that belief in good government and teamed with mission-driven partners to create meaningful, durable change. We hire world-changers: smart, dedicated people who thrive on challenge and work together to create innovative solutions across disciplines. We’ve matured into a company of around 100 employees, with subject-matter experts in everything from flood and mitigation to lab science and biodefense operations. But at our core, we’re still determined bootstrappers who share a vision. We lean into change to develop leading-edge capabilities that help our customers carry out their missions and reach their goals.

More than ever, we’re changing the world for good.
