Corporate Background

Technology Advancement Group®, Inc. (TAG®) is a Veteran-Owned Small Business (VOSB), Small Disadvantaged (Hispanic) Business (SDB), and an ISO 9001:2008 certified Quality Management System Company with a UL Registered Firm Mark. TAG specializes in custom-designed electronic equipment, Information Technology (IT), staffing solutions, and network management services. TAG’s headquarters, an 8-acre campus located in Dulles, VA, includes a secured Advanced Engineering Concepts Center that provides over 35,000 sq. ft. of R&D, engineering, testing, and manufacturing space. The brand new 150’ telecommunications tower now provides the Dulles Virginia Technology Corridor with business-class wireless networking access at the Nexus of the Internet™. TAG also maintains Satellite Offices in San Diego and Westlake Village, CA, and a Program Office at Scott AFB in Fairview Heights, IL.

TAG was founded in 1984 by John A. McEwan, MSEE, who is the company’s Owner and Chairman. In 1976 he graduated from the US Naval Academy with a BS in Electrical Engineering then served at sea. He directly supported the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff in the Current Action Center of the National Military Command Center. In 1985 he received his MS in Electrical Engineering (Optical Computing) from the University of Maryland while assigned to the US Naval Research Laboratory. He adopted the TAG Ball as a schematic representation of forward thinking and innovation, as the symbol for TAG. It acts as a constant reminder that even the smallest of ideas can have a huge impact. Since our humble beginnings as IT innovators, TAG is at the forefront of developing IT solutions for specific military requirements. TAG is also pioneering customer service experiences by placing the customer in direct contact to John, who is available to all customers 24/7.

TAG’s executive management team is headed by James S. McEwan, who is the company’s President and Chief Executive Officer (CEO). Before joining TAG in 1995, he held several key management roles for Browns Automotive Group, including President & General Manager, and Vice President of Finance and Leasing. While working in the automotive industry, he served on several Finance and Marketing boards for Mazda, SAAB, General Motors and Subaru of America. Jim’s in-depth knowledge of mechanical and electrical engineering has propelled TAG as a leader in state-of-the-art information technology solutions for the defense industry. His visionary leadership has been the driving force for TAG’s tremendous growth in the last ten years. He studied Mechanical Engineering at Virginia Polytechnic Institute (VPI) and serves on TAG’s Board of Directors.
