Dr. Marvin Carrol
President & CEO
Before launching Tec-Masters, Dr. Marvin Carroll designed simulations for anti-tank missiles. His work on the Tube-launched, Optically tracked, Wire-guided (TOW) missile system helped him progress to the management of missile systems, which involved development, testing, manufacturing and building. He served as the deputy project manager and chief engineer for the HELLFIRE/Ground Vehicle Laser Locator Designator Project Office of the U.S. Army Space and Missile Command. After designing weapons systems for the Department of Defense as a civilian contractor, in 1988 Dr. Carroll leveraged his experience in systems engineering, logistics and programming along with his knowledge and contacts to establish Tec-Masters, Inc., a company that has come to symbolize what service is to Government and commercial customers.
“It’s not so much how good you are or what you know, it’s all about a customer’s requirements. It’s your job to try to understand them and try to convince the customer that you’re the one who can satisfy. At the end of the day, the business exists because we have people that possess these skillsets required by the customers. You have to take the steps to try and get the best people to do the job that’s required by your customer.”
Because giving back to the community has always been part of Dr. Carroll’s character, and knowing the challenges of growing a small business, he instilled mentorship as an integral part of the Tec-Masters corporate culture and mission. From technology transfer to business operations best practices, our company provides mentoring in a variety of forms to address specific business challenges.
Dr. Carroll has a doctorate and Master of Public Administration from Nova University; a Bachelor of Science in electrical engineering from Howard University; and, is a graduate of the Defense System Management College in Fort Belvoir, Virginia.
