Press Releases


[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]WASHINGTON, DC | July 2, 2014 – Technical and Project Engineering, LLC (TAPE), an Inc. 500 | 5000 fastest-growing company, has named Col. (Retired) Matthew T. Clarke vice president of Modeling, Simulation and Training (MS&T) of its Strong Point Research Division. Col. Clarke is a recently retired U.S. Army officer and former director of the Army Research Lab Simulation and Training Technology Center (STTC).  He will assume his new post in July. 

“We are excited to have Col. Clarke on board,” said Louisa Long Jaffe, CEO and president of TAPE. “With his military background and modeling and simulation expertise, he will ensure that TAPE remains at the forefront of the modeling and simulation industry.

“This executive role requires a leader who can promote TAPE’s MS&T capabilities, recruit the highest-caliber talent and offer our clients innovative solutions,” Jaffe added.  “Col. Clarke is certainly the person to realize these goals.”

With over 30 years of experience in military and civilian command structures, including 10 years as a specialist in combat systems and training, Col. Clarke will leverage his know-how to provide a full spectrum of targeted and tailored solutions to the Department of Defense and other government clients.  These solutions range from simulation-based combat/warfighting exercises and advanced technology operations to systems engineering, support services, financial and program management modeling, and classroom-based education. From back-office planning, management and budgeting to network-based cyber attacks, the TAPE Strong Point Research Division models and simulates real-world contingencies that confront military and civilian agencies.

“I’m excited to join a cutting-edge and forward-thinking organization like TAPE,” Clarke said. “The talent and creativity at this organization fosters an environment of innovation and growth every day.  I look forward to working with the men and women who make up the TAPE Strong Point Research Division and to realizing the business success that will undoubtedly ensue.”

In September 2013, TAPE acquired Strong Point Research, an Orlando-based modeling and simulation firm, and created the TAPE Strong Point Research Division. TAPE-Strong Point provides a holistic approach that empowers its customers to confidently plan, budget, execute, measure and sustain their training operations across virtually any requirement, regardless of the scope, complexity, or nature of the engagement.  The division currently supports the U.S. Army Program Executive Office for Simulation, Training & Instrumentation (PEO STRI).
