Peerless Technologies President Michael Bridges and Chief Financial Officer Andrea Kunk have each been named to the 2020 listing of “Who’s Who in Aerospace and Defense” by the Dayton Business Journal.

“With aerospace and defense being such a vital sector of our economy, the Dayton Business Journal has again compiled a list of the people we think you need to know if you are doing business in these sectors – or if you want to start doing business in these sectors,” the business journal notes.

The DBJ calls Peerless “one of the most prominent and consistently growing defense companies launched in the Dayton region.”

Also named to Who’s Who in Aerospace and Defense is CFO Andrea Kunk, the second employee to join Peerless 20 years ago, and who became CFO 14 years ago.

Founded in Dayton in 2000 by Bridges, Peerless has grown into an award-winning professional services, engineering and cybersecurity firm supporting numerous aspects of national security, with almost 500 employees nationwide and operating at $100M annualized sales.

Peerless has supported a wide variety of federal clients, including the United States Air Force, Army, Navy, NASA, Department of Homeland Security, Environmental Protection Agency, Department of Homeland Security, CENTCOM, STRATCOM, Defense Logistics Agency, Defense Information Systems Agency, Department of Energy and General Services Administration.

Bridges currently serves on the Board of Trustees for Wright State University, as well as boards for the Dayton Development Coalition and Faith Ignited Church; and has served on boards at Aileron and The Entrepreneurs Center in Dayton.

Kunk is a past winner of the Dayton Business Journal’s Forty under 40 and was a past finalist for the DBJ’s Small Business CFO of the Year award. She is the Chair of the Wright State University Foundation Board of Trustees and also serves as the Vice President of the Fairborn Development Corporation Board of Directors.
