MIAMI, Jan. 14, 2022 –CEO Coaching International, the leading firm for coaching growth-focused CEOs and entrepreneurs globally, is pleased to congratulate its client, digital transformation leader B3 Group, Inc. (B3), on its sale to Octo, the premier pure-play IT modernization provider for the Federal government.

The addition of B3’s marquee programs, including the $686 million Digital Transformation Center (DTC) contract, expands the technical modernization expertise Octo provides at scale to its existing federal civilian, homeland security, defense, and intelligence customers.

“It has been a privilege to work closely with B3 Group over the past 2 years, and to witness how CEO Dwight Hunt and co-founder Brad Palmer’s’ tenacity, drive, and focus on innovation has led them to this incredible milestone,” said Rafe Wilkinson, a Partner and Coach at CEO Coaching International. “I’m extremely proud of the B3 team and look forward to helping them continue on this path of growth and success.”
