P.J. Braden is the Chief Executive Officer and founder of Gryphon Technologies, LC, a premier engineering and technical services firm providing support to National Security and Coalition Forces.
Gryphon is a company that has grown to over 700 employees and $100M in annual revenue since being founded 15 years ago.
Before founding Gryphon in 1998, Braden served in various positions of increasing responsibility in the defense industry for over 17 years. She began her career as a cost analyst and then quickly moved into business development. She became a Vice President of Marketing for a mid‐sized Navy systems integration company. A few years later she joined a similar business that was a start‐up and became the Sr. Vice President of Business Development and was later promoted to the Sr. Vice President of Operations.
When that company sold, she took the opportunity to start Gryphon Technologies.
Braden was selected as one of 12 members of the Professional Services Council Executive Committee (PSCEC), the leading advocacy group of the defense industry and served for over five years.
Braden served on the Advisory Board of the Smithsonian, American University’s Women in Politics Institute and Lehr Environmental Corporation.
