The firm has 350 employees and nearly $100 million in annual revenue.

Command Holdings is the non-gaming investment arm of Southeastern Connecticut’s Mashantucket Pequot Tribal Nation. The tribe owns Foxwoods Resort Casino, one of the largest hotel and casino complexes in the US, among other hospitality businesses.

“The Mashantucket Pequot Tribe is an industrious nation," said Angelina Casanova, chair of the Command Holdings board of directors. "We have re-imagined and pioneered the $35+ billion tribal gaming industry with our Foxwoods properties and diversified beyond hospitality into professional services. This expansion of Command Holdings provides greater sustainment for the tribe's economy and career opportunities for generations of Pequots to come."

Progress Park, a Boston-based investment bank, served as exclusive financial advisor to Command Holdings on the deal.

“At Command Holdings, we are focused on expanding our professional services footprint, specifically in the federal government," said Jon Panamaroff, Command Holdings CEO. "The acquisition of WWC Global enables us to do this, while also working to establish an enterprise of best-in-class tribally owned government contracting firms."
